Saturday, February 1, 2020

9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Clear Lake High School

Clear Lake High School’s PTA is hosting “Engineers in Real Life”, an exciting, half-day career fair to give local-area students a glimpse of the cool projects engineers contribute to! This invitation is open to all engineering disciplines.

Students will learn the answers to the questions:

  • What does it mean to be an engineer?
  • What do engineers do?
  • What does it take to be an engineer?
  • What types of engineers are there?

Check out pictures from last year’s successful event here.

Community college to elementary students from public, private or home school learning environments are all welcome to this free event.

Get involved.

Let us continue to provide invaluable support to the youth and the future of STEM!
