TOWSON, Md. (Nov. 6, 2008)—–Towson University will hold the STEM Celebration and Expo on Nov. 20 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the University Union Chesapeake Rooms. The event will recognize the efforts of individuals and programs that encourage K–16 students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.
Approximately 76 million baby boomers are expected to retire in the coming years without enough younger workers to replace them. STEM fields are projected to be the hardest hit by this talent shortage.
Those interested in attending, displaying a poster or delivering a short (8–10 minute) presentation at the expo should R.S.V.P. to Rommel Miranda at 410-704-3017 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This event is sponsored by the Jess and Mildred Fisher College of Science and Mathematics.
