Giving Latino Students a Feel for the STEM Field

Last week, 90 students from around the country descended on Houston to get some hands-on and close-up experience with working engineers. The NCLR STEM Youth Summit, sponsored by Marathon Oil, gave students the opportunity to get a feel for what it’s like to work in a STEM field and allowed them to ask questions about what a career in STEM means. The event was highly successful, and one student even decided this weekend, after hearing two of the guests speak, that they want to pursue a career in engineering!

Below are some other highlights from the day-long event.
