Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams believes that getting kids started on their career path early is important. STEM careers are in high demand; therefore it is imperative that we make our children aware of these career options. Preparing children and high school students now makes sure they are gainfully employed in their future.
In conjunction with Black Girls Code and YWCA of Brooklyn, we will host The STEM Career Panel and Back to School Readiness Program, a discussion with professionals and experts in the STEM field to talk to students ages 10 to 17 about why it is important to study STEM related fields. The goal of this program is to inform children on a specialized field of studies that will lead them on a successful career path. These teachings will also be supplemented with giveaways of back to school supplies, so that when the day is completed the kids are given both the mental and physical tools needed to have a prosperous school year.
The STEM Career Panel and Back to School Readiness Program will be held at Brooklyn Borough Hall, 209 Joralemon Street on Saturday, August 22nd with registration opening at 9:00 AM and the program ending at 12 PM. Refreshments will be served.
I ask that you share this information and enclosed STEM Panel Attendee Form with your networks. RSVP is required by August 14th. Thank you
