Why "A Possible Self"?

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) occupations are the fastest growing employment opportunities both in the U.S. and around the world. Everything from the infrastructure that makes up our cities, to the smartphones in our pockets, involves scientists and engineers at some point in their development and production.

Therefore, introducing students to STEM during elementary thru high school is essential. Exposing young minds to STEM fields early means they are more likely to engage in STEM opportunities and develop a passion for one of the STEM fields. This is especially true when it comes to closing the gender and ethnicity gaps in many STEM fields by introducing girls and ethnic minorities into STEM.

The STEMentors “Possible Self” is one of the largest STEM fair experientials in California, showcasing STEM events, presentations, stage performances and interactive activities aimed at introducing K-20 students to science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics.
