7th Annual STEM Expo

Belmont College, in conjunction with College Tech Prep, will host the 7th Annual STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Expo on Friday, March 20, 2020 from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm. The Expo, designed to educate 8th grade students about education pathways and careers available in STEM, will be help at Belmont College Main Campus in St. Clairsville, Ohio.

The purpose of the STEM Expo is to increase student awareness of a variety of STEM careers. Middle school is a particularly important time, with many students beginning to consider possible career options. The opinions they have about STEM subjects at this age will be taken through to further years, with previous experiences or perceptions dramatically impacting their future choices. Many middle school students fail to understand how it fits within their own goals or world. At this age, they are often unable to see the connection between what they are learning and their own life. As a community, we must promote STEM and how it relates to our everyday life.
