Worcester County STEM students offered opportunity to work in career fields

Students in Worcester County are being offered a chance to explore their local career paths.  Worcester County Economic Development is accepting applications from students, ages 12-24, for their STEM summer enrichment programs.

The program connects local STEM businesses with the future workforce aimed at showing Worcester County students there are viable jobs in science, technology, engineering and math right here locally.

Programs include an eight day STEM camp and even a chance to intern with NASA at Wallops Island.

"Sometimes they need the opportunity to really get their hands on experience and find out what it is about it they really enjoy, what parts of it they really connect with and build relationships with employers so that they know that there are opportunities for them in the job market, particularly for STEM here on the eastern shore," says Fawn Mete, program manager with the Worcester County Economic Development.

We are told the application process is very competitive.  You can find those applications online at chooseworcester.org/stem.
