Local Experts Share Their Educational and Career Experience with D. C. Everest Middle School Students
In an effort to prepare students for high-demand career opportunities in the 21st century, several years ago the D.C. Everest Area School District launched a district-wide initiative to integrate STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art/design, math) skills across the curriculum for all K – 12 students. A key component of that initiative is providing students with the opportunity to meet experts and learn first-hand about the educational requirements and job and employability skills necessary to be successful in these fields.
