On Thursday, March 9, 2017, over 200 students, parents and educators attended the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) Pathways Evening at Binghamton University’s Innovative Technologies Complex.
The evening was designed to increase awareness and interest in STEAM careers, as well as provide information to youth and parents regarding the pathways needed to achieve these careers.
The event featured exhibits and presentations by local STEAM businesses (including BAE Systems, BCK-IBI Group, Columbian Financial Group, Delta Engineers, Architects, & Land Surveyors, DPC, IBM, Lockheed Martin, The Raymond Corporation, Triple Cities Makerspace, Inc. and UHS), opportunities to meet with students from both SUNY Broome as well as Binghamton University, and information regarding career opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics.
Advancing science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education is a critical focus for our region. We know firsthand the importance of educating young people in these fields. Our future success, and our nation’s technological advantage, depends on there being a reliable pool of highly trained and technically capable talent.
This event was sponsored by the Greater Binghamton Education Outreach Program (GBEOP), Eastern Southern Tier STEM HUB, School to Careers Partnership of Broome and Tioga Counties, Binghamton University and SUNY Broome
