Amy the Assistant Director of the PRIME STEM program is seeking volunteers to participate in a poliot STEM Career Academy on Aug 5 for 20-30 STEM students. As part of the event we are hoping to have a networking reception with an industry representative from all engineering disciplines.

Through a one-day STEM Career Academy students will evaluate their skills, values, personality, and related career fit with their intended career path. This event will help them become better prepared for making career-related decisions. The Academy will also feature skill development for networking and elevator pitches. Students will then be given an opportunity to apply these skills during a networking hour with STEM industry professionals. We hope to have a representative from all of the engineering disciplines so all students will have an individual to networking with that is in their chosen field.

We are seeking volunteers from 3pm-4pm on August 5 to network with our students and provide them with opportunities to learn more about their future career field. Please email Amy Bickel Amy.Bickel@ucf.edu or 407-823-3287 if you like to volunteer.
