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.

1. Information Technology

2. Computer Science

3. Mathematics

4. Civil Engineering

5. Computer Programming

6. Environmental Engineering

7. Marine Sciences

8. Electronics

9. Aerospace

11. Agricultural Engineering

12. Agriculture

13. Astronomy

14. Forestry and Wildlife

15. Architecture

16. Medicine

17. Researchers

20. Entreprenaurs
