MESA STEM Shadow Day
MESA’s STEM Shadow Day will be on Thursday, November 16, 2017.
Through the San Diego MESA Alliance, pre-college and college students will have a unique experience to witness the “real world” of work in an engineering or scientific environment.
Industry’s involvement will provide a great opportunity for our up and coming students to “test the waters” in a field of their interest and see first-hand how classroom skills relate to the workplace. What better way to do that, than observe and work with a professional in action! Employers can make a positive impact on the lives of students; future engineers and scientists!
If this will be your first time participating in STEM Shadow Day, the way it works is simple. Students typically shadow a math, science or engineering professional from your company from approximately ~8:30-10:00 am. to ~2:00-3:30 pm. During this time, we ask that you provide the best experience possible; this is after all a potential employee.
Should you choose to participate, you have the flexibility to structure your STEM Shadow Day agenda to best match your company’s environment.
Through this program, students can picture themselves in these positions; in the near future and can also create goals to get there. View past MESA STEM Shadow Days on our San Diego MESA Alliance archives.
