Celebrating National STEM Day
Tuesday, November 8th was National STEM Day! Thank you to everyone that celebrated with us by sharing their STEM Stories. We want to hear from everyone about their STEM journeys so please continue to tag us in your STEM posts.
The OSE believes in the power of connection, collaboration, and communication to address the critical shortfall of professionals in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. On National STEM Day and everyday we are connecting STEM programs to facilitate efficient and effective career pathways that grow the number of local STEM professionals and create balance between industry demand and available talent.
Connecting STEM Professionals
Thank you to everyone for joining us at the Omaha STEM Connect to learn more about the STEM Community Platform and our mission. We had 57 attendees at this event for business leaders to learn how to engage with the SCP and impact change in the region’s career pipeline. We appreciate all of the speakers that presented on ways they engage the SCP. To our incredible sponsors, we value the connection, collaboration and communication with each of you as we build a stronger, diverse and sustainable STEM community. We appreciate your commitment to fueling brighter futures in STEM.
