JA STEM Summit

2017 Hall of Fame Laureates


Students entering the 21st-century workplace will face an occupational world unrecognizable to their parents. Many of the jobs they will pursue didn't exist ten years ago.  The majority of high paying jobs will be in STEM-related career fields.  Some will require advanced degrees, but many will just require advanced training.  One thing they all require though is a commitment to being the best at what you do.   That is why it is critical for students to discover a career that gets them excited; one where they discover their passion.
