STEM Career Fair Volunteers Needed! Auburn High School, 16 November 2017

Greetings, fellow astrophiles!

This in from the TACNY list –

Please RSVP by October 30
Date: November 16, 2017
Place: Auburn High school, 250 Lake Ave, Auburn, NY
Time: Set up/dinner 5:30-6:30; Present from 6:30- 8:30

The CNY American Chemical Society chapter along with Auburn High School and the ACS Auburn High School Chem club are hosting a Science career fair to help High School and College students in Cayuga and Onondaga counties identify careers in science that would interest them. Many students are not familiar with all the various careers that involve science so are unable to take the correct courses to meet the requirements for those careers.

We are looking for members of the community that have a career in science fields that are willing to take the time to share their experiences of their job on Thursday evening, November 16, 2017 from 6:30 to 8:30. Set-up time and a thank you dinner will be provided from 5:30 to 6:30 at Auburn High School.

The evening will be run similar to a college fair where presenters will be at display tables and students will walk around speaking to presenters about their careers. To help students, they will have an icebreaker activity with suggested questions that they can ask as they fill out a booklet to win a prize.

We ask that presenters have a display with pictures of you doing your job, where you went to high school, college, and beyond and maybe an activity, demonstration or giveaway. If you would like help with a display, please let us know. We have several very creative students that would design one for you.

If you have any questions, please email or call Prin Furst: cell (315) 436-8902: prin_furst@auburn.cnyric.org
