  1. Be a STEM Expo PresenterClick here for Presenter Sign-up

Engage with students through hands-on demonstrations that relate to your organization’s focus. Past Expos have featured over 25 presenters from a variety of STEM backgrounds and industries. Students move through tables/presentations akin to a job fair, so we encourage interactive demonstrations.

Time: 9:00am-1:30pm

2. Be a Speed Mentor – Speed Mentoring Registration is full. Please e-mail Christine at to be added to the waitlist.

Talk with students in short, 1-on-1 conversations similar to “speed dating”. Students will have the opportunity to ask you about your career and academic journey, pursuits outside of work/school, and vice versa!

Time: 3 sessions available – 10:00-11:00am, 11:05am-12:05pm, and 12:10-1:10pm. Speed Mentors should plan to commit to at least one session.
