Mind the Gap: STEM and our Future Workforce
WM Symposia is devoted to fostering science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) engagement as a pathway to energize young minds. To develop and maintain a pipeline that delivers our future workforce, we must work together to support STEM initiatives for younger students. WM2024 will feature activities highlighting STEM throughout the conference week including interactive panels, a teacher workshop, a STEM Zone in the Exhibit Hall and much more for you to participate in and support.
Please consider one of the opportunities listed below for your Sponsorship investment.
