With each Blanchette Bulletin, I will add more information about STEM.
For this week, I wanted to talk about STEM careers and find out how many of our parents are in a STEM-related job, and if so, if you would be interested in talking to a class at some point in the spring.
STEM-related jobs are:
1. Information Technology
2. Computer Science
4. Civil Engineering
5. Computer Programming
6. Environmental Engineering
7. Marine Sciences
10. Nuclear Medicine
11. Agricultural Engineering
14. Forestry and Wildlife
19. Waste Management
We will send out a survey soon to see how many parents who are in STEM-related careers and are interested in being guest speakers. Stay tuned!
