On Tuesday, June 18, the 2019 STEM Day Out will take place as a collaborative effort from organizations connected to the GROW NKY initiative at the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce (NKY Chamber).

Select GROW NKY partners including, the Greater Cincinnati STEM Collaborative, Junior Achievement of OKI Partners, and Northern Kentucky University have teamed up to host the 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 and educational institutions.

Organizations participating in STEM Day Out include Balluff, Celanese, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Covington Catholic High School STEM Design & Engineering Experience, Kentucky Innovation Network, Mazak, Northern Kentucky University, Safran, St. Elizabeth Healthcare, and Thomas More University.

“STEM focus areas represent some of the fastest growing career fields in the region,” said Amanda Johanneman, Director of Talent Strategies and NKYP at the NKY Chamber. “This event not only exposes students to potential career paths but introduces them to professionals who can speak to what it takes to be successful 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 sponsors for STEM Day Out are Celanese, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, and Northern Kentucky University.
