On Wednesday, July 18 the Northern Kentucky Chamber (NKY Chamber), in partnership with NKY Education Council and Greater Cincinnati Stem Collaborative, will host STEM Day Out, a free experiential learning opportunity for students in grades six through eight from across the region.
 
During STEM Day Out, students will learn about potential career paths in science, technology, engineering, and math fields while visiting and touring local companies.

Companies participating in STEM Day Out include Balluff, Boone Co. Conservation District, Celanese, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, Covington Catholic High School, Duke Energy, General Cable, Kentucky Innovation Network, Mazak, Northern Kentucky University, Safran, St. Elizabeth Healthcare, and Thomas More College.  
“STEM focus areas, represent the skills and knowledge students can utilize when they are ready to enter the workforce,” said Leisa Mulcahy, Vice President of Workforce at the NKY Chamber.

“Recent reports show that 80 percent of jobs in the next decade will require these skills, so it is important that we not only educate our students but expose them to a wide variety of career options as well.”

STEM DAY OUT will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Parents who are interested registering their students to attend must register online.  

There is no cost to attend.

The funding partners for the program are Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and The Innovation Network.
