2014 STEM Shadow Day

Through the San Diego MESA Alliance, pre-college and college students will have a unique experience to witness the “real world” of work in an engineering or scientific environment.

Industry’s involvement will provide a great opportunity for our up and coming students to “test the waters” in a field of their interest and see first-hand how classroom skills relate to the workplace. What better way to do that, than observe and work with a professional in action! Employers can make a positive impact on the lives of students; future engineers and scientists!

MESA’s STEM Shadow Day is on Thursday, November 20, 2014.
