High school students have a new opportunity to learn about careers and serve in their local communities. The Southeast Tennessee STEM Innovation Hub has announced the creation of the STEM Student Council. This region-wide student group is open to high school students from all over Southeast Tennessee who are interested in pursuing a career associated with science, technology, engineering or math. Up to 75 students will be selected for the 2013-2014 STEM Student Council.
The application process does not include any academic achievement or prior community service requirements. Any student interested in a STEM-related field is encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity. Members of the STEM Student Council will interact with business professionals, take part in projects to improve their local communities, learn more about STEM careers, and meet other students from around the region. STEM spans a wide range of career possibilities, from computer technology to manufacturing to medicine. Students with variety of career interests will be invited to participate in the council.
