Community Career+Education Forum returns September 17, 2020

STEM forum gives students the chance to learn about careers in manufacturing

Last year, nearly 1000 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 will return in 2020!

“This forum provides parents and students, our future workforce, education on career opportunities right here in Johnson County and also gives them a realistic idea of the skills needed for these careers," said Dana Monson, Interim Executive Director. "This is done in a unique and collaborative setting with many business and community partners working together to tell Our story."
