    Science, technology, engineering, and math. At my school, there are clubs in which people that want to pursue certain careers in the future join and get to meet professionals in the industry. I feel this helps encourage both initially interested and non-interested students alike.

    STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and math. Anyone with jobs in these fields are usually successful and powerful, because the ideas used in these fields can change the way we live, or help us do something more efficient. This is why it is important to promote STEM careers at schools. At my school, there aren’t any clubs or anything to promote STEM careers, but I believe that with enough interest, there will definitely be teachers ready to help. I think one-on-one nurturing is more beneficial. Instead of being with a group, which could sway your thinking, if you meet with the teacher that teaches a class you’re interested in, they could help you more personally meet the goals you are reaching for, no matter what career you want. They often have many other connections, and can help you set up a meeting with some highly influential people that might give you an intern job, or even a real job later on. But nothing is possible without interest.

    Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. We have a Robotics team at our school which I am involved with. Every year, we present our robot to the school at an assembly and never fail to gain new members. Going to Robotics competitions is a good way to learn more about STEM careers because lots of companies centered around STEM fields visit the competitions to promote their companies and promote STEM education.
