College to Host Math and Science Career Night
East Central College will host a Math and Science Career Night Wednesday, Nov. 10.
ECC is teaming up with Missouri S&T to present the event, which allows for high school students and their families to meet with faculty and students from both institutions.
Math and Science Career Night will be held in the ECC gym from 7-9 p.m.
Missouri S&T will give a presentation on engineering careers after high school students and parents have an opportunity to talk one-on-one with representatives from both colleges.
High schoolers also will get advice on what they can do to best prepare for college while in high school.
STEM occupations are expected to grow by more than 10 percent through 2030. The average salary is nearly twice the salary of non-STEM jobs, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.
STEM occupations include computer and mathematical, architecture and engineering, and life and physical science occupations, as well as managerial and postsecondary teaching occupations related to these functional areas and sales occupations requiring scientific or technical knowledge at the postsecondary level.
