STEM Career Day Presenter Information
Welcome interested presenters! This page will provide information on how to be a presenter for the STEM Career Day events at UW-Stevens Point. For an overview of the two programs: click here
There are currently two STEM Career Day events, one in November for boys and another in February for girls. Both events cater to students in 7th and 8th grade. Each event includes professionals from a variety of STEM careers.
Presenters include faculty and staff from UW-Stevens Point and professionals from off campus organizations.
Presenters are asked to explain their career choice, the educational and career tracks they chose, and what they enjoy about their career. Workshops should provide a fun, hands-on activity showcasing one or more aspects of their career. Workshops should be age appropriate and contain modern content.
To submit a workshop, presenters need to submit a workshop proposal form by the date specified below. After the program has been developed, the complete program will be posted online. Schools and individuals will pre-register for the event up to one month prior to the event date.
The program registration system is first come, first served, so students may be in your workshop if they want to be there or not. On one hand, students to get exposured to careers they may not have otherwise chosen, but on the other hand, they did not get into the workshop they wanted to. From the presenter's perspective, it's extremely important to have an attractive workshop and an engaging presentation and activity. This is particularly helpful for the hard sciences.
Available Workshop Times
Each event has three, one-hour workshop. We require 17-23 workshops in each time slot. More workshops are needed for the February event as this is typically a larger event.
