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.
