Career Connection Days

What are Career Connection Days?

Students explore a variety of science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) related careers and businesses that exist in the region.


What is the difference between STEAM and STEM careers?

“STEAM is intentional about connecting the arts in and through the STEM areas. It’s not just about ‘making the product look pretty’. Instead, the arts are an integral part of the work as a whole. Both the actual arts themselves and/or the skills the arts build.”

Image and excerpt from “STEAM Careers for the 21st Century

  • Meet & talk to STEAM professionals in a relaxed, informal setting.
