BATAVIA – The annual Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Career Expo at Fermilab in Batavia will put students face-to-face with people doing the jobs they will be applying for in coming years. The STEM event is set for 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. April 18 in the atrium of Wilson Hall off Kirk Road and Pine Street.

In addition to Fermilab scientists and engineers, the expo will feature more than 100 professionals from more than 30 local companies and research organizations who will explain what they do, according to a news release.

This is not a college or job fair and is not about recruiting, organizer Susan Dahl of the Fermilab Office of Education and Public Outreach, stated in the news release. She said it is a chance for students to talk one-on-one with professionals working in their fields of interest.

The expo will include five panel discussions on STEM-related topics, with an opportunity for students to ask questions.

“We hope students come away with a new view of the possibilities of finding careers in these fascinating fields and a more realistic idea of the individuals working in these very relevant and interesting jobs,” Dahl stated in the release.

The STEM Career Expo is free and open to all high school students. It is a collaborative event organized by the Fermilab Office of Education and Public Outreach and educators and career specialists from DuPage and Kane county schools. Sponsors include Fermilab Friends for Science Education, Batavia High School, Geneva High School and York Community High School.
