Community, Career and Education Forum returns October 6th
STEM forum gives students the chance to learn about careers in manufacturing
Last year, over 800 students, parents, educators and manufacturing professionals from all over Johnson County and Southern Marion County gathered at the forum to learn about S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and career opportunities in advanced manufacturing today. The popular event returns in 2016 and promises to deliver a unique experience to attendees and exhibitors alike.
CCEF partners raise awareness about local careers
"The forum is great example of what collaboration among local area employers can do to help mitigate potential talent pipeline challenges within a community," said Cheryl Morphew, President & CEO of Johnson County Development Corporation & Aspire Johnson County. "This partner-created model of excellence allowed students, parents and educators the opportunity to gain valuable information about STEM pathways and helped raise awareness about career opportunities available in our own backyard."
