SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- More than 150 Syracuse High School students gathered at National Grid on Thursday to learn more about the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.
The day was hosted in partnership with Partners for Education and Business, and the CNY STEM Hub. The students were treated to hands on demonstrations, and learned about the fun involved in STEM careers.
"Really important because high school sets the standards for what they're going to be taking once they get to get into college. Not everyone will be going to college. We have some folks, some positions here that don't require college. And we'll show those positions as well," said Wally Dengos, the jurisdictional manager of National Grid.
STEM Careers Day was also celebrated with the official launch of www.cnystem.com. It provides students and professionals with resources to engage in STEM careers.
