ATLAS | About the Program
The ATLAS symposium allows students and parents to explore rewarding careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). Participants meet STEM professionals from a variety of backgrounds and fields through panels and networking sessions. Participants also discuss college, internship, and career opportunities with representatives from local universities, companies, and STEM organizations. Through these interactions, future STEM leaders learn about real world applications of STEM and receive advice about how to succeed in these fields.
Maryland’s inaugural ATLAS event was held in partnership with Hispanic Heritage Foundation in November 2013 and previously known as LOFT, Leaders on Fast Track. Read about the LOFT event in our wrap up document (PDF).
