Few careers are as fulfilling as that of an educator or school counselor. Individuals in those roles are tasked with helping and guiding a students’ educational and vocational direction while maintaining working knowledge of many career paths and opportunities.
STEM careers impact technology, medicine, sustainability, social welfare, and much more. Through this professional development opportunity, counselors will be prepared to speak openly and comfortably with students interested in entering a STEM discipline.
