Personal Finance Career Options on Display at the Minneapolis Public School’s STEM Expo


We had a great time at the 2019 Minneapolis Public School STEM Expo this week!

At the MPS STEM and Career Exploration Expo, students explore a variety of career options that require a strong academic foundation in science, math, technology, engineering, design thinking, and problem-solving skills. Business professionals provide short demonstrations related to their careers and talk in this small group setting about the realistic steps and obstacles in pursuing a STEM career. Students visit exhibitor displays to learn more about after-school and community STEM activities, post-secondary college and career readiness options, and Minnesota STEM-related businesses.

The primary mission of the STEM Expo is to ensure that all students learn; and support their growth into knowledgeable, skilled and confident citizens capable of succeeding in their work, personal and family life into the 21st century.  Goals of the STEM & Career Exploration Expo are to change student perceptions of STEM and high tech, high wage careers, explore related career possibilities, and share the information regarding educational pathways required to realize those opportunities.

The STEM Expo provides students with the chance to find relevance in their STEM coursework and understand how it will impact their future career options by encouraging interactions with STEM professionals from industry and post-secondary institutions.
