Students from the Laurel County Schools Center for Innovation (CFI) were featured participants and presenters at the 1st Annual STEM Goes Red Conference sponsored by the American Heart Association on February 25, 2020, at the London Community Center. “The conference was established to promote Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) career goals for young girls in the middle school grades,” said Jennifer Ebert, Go Red for Women Director.
“We enjoyed having representatives from our various technical programs speak with the middle school students and describe their STEM learning experiences at the CFI,” remarked Dr. James M. Davis, Principal.
Students from Engineering Technology, Industrial Technology, Media Technology, and Health Sciences prepared remarks to share with the middle school students that included the importance of taking rigorous STEM classes, being able to take dual credit college courses, college field trip experiences related to their career paths and participating in work-based learning with local employers. Davis added, “I am so very proud of these young ladies and their ability to communicate professionally about their educational experiences at the CFI and how they benefited from the programs that we offer as they pursue their college and career goals.”
For more information about the programs of study and career pathways available for Laurel County Schools students contact the CFI at 864-5580 to speak with a program coordinator.
