Michigan STEM Careers Video Showcase

Michigan STEM Careers Video Showcase - video-production-kcA joint initiative from the Michigan STEM Partnership, the Mobile Technology Association of Michigan (MTAM) and Inforum, the Michigan STEM Careers Video Showcase features self-produced videos from MTAM and Inforum members working in STEM-related positions across a wide diversity of industries throughout Michigan.

THESE STEM PROFESSIONALS ARE EACH PROVIDING A VIDEO, USUALLY 3 - 5 MINUTES IN LENGTH, THAT WILL DISCUSS:

  • the work they do
  • the type of education required
  • what they love about their job
  • the "opportunity" from their perspective (ie: why students should pursue this career)

THE GOALS OF THIS INITIATIVE INCLUDE:

  • increasing student awareness of the wide variety of STEM-related careers, requirements to work in those careers, and the opportunity those careers provide for exciting, challenging and lucrative careers
  • Increasing parent awareness of the same in order to enable parents to see the value in encouraging their children to go into STEM-related careers - particularly females and minorities who are currently severely under-represented in many STEM fields
  • providing educators with a tool they can use as part of their curriculum
  • providing Michigan firms an opportunity to showcase their firms and their employees as a potential recruitment tool
  • providing STEM employees across every industry in Michigan an opportunity to showcase their expertise
