The goal is to teach and encourage local students to be entrepreneurs. Students will also learn about this year’s STEM 4 Challenge sponsored by Workforce Solutions Upper Rio Grande.
The STEM 4 Challenge provides real world opportunity for regional high school students to
develop their innovative ideas into a business plan approach. By aligning Science, Technology,
Engineering and Math components into a business plan, the STEM Challenge is intended to
capture the innovative entrepreneurial spirit of students by emphasizing the importance of
applying those skills to help fill high demand industries of tomorrow. It is further meant to
engender their interest in pursuing a career in one of the four STEM disciplines.
The deadline to register for this year’s competition is February 18. For more details, visit www.urgjobs.org.
