6th Annual Ignite Opportunity STEM Career Day

Approximately 1,400 freshman students from Shasta, Trinity, Tehama, Glenn, Plumas, Butte, Siskiyou, Lassen and Modoc counties will participate in the North State STEM Ignite Opportunity STEM Career Day at the Shasta District Fairgrounds on November 15th, 2019! There is no cost to attend. The event will take place from 9:40 a.m. to 2:10 p.m. T-shirts and other giveaways will be provided!

With the most exciting and challenging jobs of the future lying in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM), career opportunities are growing at a rapid rate. These careers don’t necessarily involve only working in a laboratory or having a fancy degree. Many of the STEM careers are very diverse, including jobs like financial analyst, biochemist, mechanical engineer, mathematician, IT manager and software developer. Businesses, institutions of higher education, and other community members from Shasta County and surrounding areas are participating in this event to inspire students to pursue rewarding STEM career paths.

This action-packed day will benefit students by providing:

• Dynamic, engaging presentations from professionals working in STEM fields
• Real-world anecdotes and advice about educational paths to STEM career opportunities in our area and beyond
• Direct access to and interaction with local professionals and college representatives
• Materials to help plan and prepare for work, post-secondary education and more!
