Approximately 500 people attended last year’s STEAM career fair.

“We will expose students to some of the many STEAM careers available, provide them with information on the education necessary for each career and encourage students to take STEAM courses that will help them become ready for future careers by promoting creative thinking and problem solving,” said Michelle Bueltel, one of the organizers of the event, which is sponsored by the Rochester Community Schools PTA Council.

The PTA Council includes representatives of the PTAs from each of 20 schools in the school district. The career fair has received donations from AT&T and from Gates Corporation.
