STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics Career Expo

The onsite STEM Career Expo is an opportunity for high school students, their parents and teachers to come to Fermilab to meet math, science, engineering and technology experts from a wide variety of careers. While we were not able to hold the Thirteenth STEM Career Expo onsite this year we held the panels virtually. View the videos and ask questions of the panelists.

Audience: High school students and their parents.

  • Meet scientists, engineers, & technicians
  • Ask career questions of experts
  • Ask experts about educational pathways leading to specific careers
  • View panel discussions on career areas.
