**SEVERE WEATHER UPDATE**
The National Weather Service has predicted a storm for Wisconsin to hit on Thursday, February 20, 2014. Most of the snowfall expected will accumulate Wednesday night and during the day on Thursday. It is expected to be done by midnight Thursday with snowfall accumulations between 4-12 inches. Weather updates will be provided as the event date nears, if conditions change. We are currently moving forward as planned - the event will go on.
The STEM Career Days are conferences offering youth in 7th and 8th grade a
chance to engage in science through fun, hands-on workshops. Science,
technology, engineering, and mathematics professionals from throughout
Wisconsin, and faculty and staff from UW-Stevens Point provide workshops about
their STEM career and illustrate the many opportunities available when having
a STEM education. Students attend exhibits, listen to a keynote speaker, and
attend three, one-hour workshops of their choosing. Workshops are held
throughout campus giving students early exposure to the UW-Stevens Point campus.
Two events are offered, one for boys in grades 7 and 8 and one for girls in
grades 7 and 8. Pre-registration is required for both events. Click on
