Activities to Help Students Learn About Careers in Science and Technology

News
A lot of people believe they have a million-dollar idea they want turn into a thriving business or best-selling product, but what if that million-dollar idea is your child’s? Cydni Tetro, President of the Women Tech Council and Sara Jones, COO of the Women Tech Council, joined Midday to explain.
 
This segment is part of our Tech Innovator series where we talk about the tools, resources and skills entrepreneurs need to be successful.  Kids have some of the best and brightest entrepreneurial minds, but they need help while they’re young to know the right skills to grow, find mentors and get guidance on where to go next.
 
“Silicon Slopes and the tech industry are growing rapidly, and they are brining lots of opportunities for students to get involved now and in the future with successful and thriving companies, or to launch ventures of their own,” explained Cydni.
 

SheTech Explorer Day designed to help girls learn about the variety of careers in science, technology, engineering and math through getting hands-on experience trying some of them firsthand with industry mentors who work in these fields,” said Sara. 

Explorer Day is coming up March 3 at UVU, and is a great opportunity for parents to get their girls involved in learning skills that will help them succeed in college and whatever field they choose.
