Prepare to Exhibit

Exhibitors should be comfortable speaking with secondary school age students and their families about educational and career opportunities in STEM fields.

In addition to providing students with informational brochures, exhibitors are encouraged to bring tabletop demos that excite students about the world of STEM innovations and opportunities.

  • For colleges, this may include anecdotes about specific undergraduate research opportunities, descriptions of faculty and student accomplishments, details on curricula, photos or descriptions of laboratories, etc.

  • Exhibitors from industry may share the importance of STEM knowledge in various career fields, their personal career journey, and related scholarship or internship opportunities.

  • Professional associations representing STEM interests may provide students with information regarding STEM careers and career pathway opportunities.

  • STEM related student organizations may share ways to stay engaged in STEM activities outside of the classroom and share their personal educational journey.
