A STEM Career Investigation Program, hosted this semester by the University of Nevada, Reno’s Raggio Research Center, is offering Washoe County School District sophomores, juniors and seniors the opportunity to observe current scientific and engineering research being conducted at the University and affiliated institutions.
“The idea behind this program is to offer exposure for students to realize careers in many specialized areas of science and engineering,” Jacque Ewing-Taylor, associate director, Raggio Research Center for STEM Education and institutional grants coordinator, said.
“This program has been really helpful in teaching me about career possibilities I didn’t know about,” Madisyn Horning, a sophomore at The Academy of Arts, Careers and Technology, said. “It’s also helped me better understand college and the steps I can take to attain degrees in higher education. I’ve learned a lot and I’m really glad to be part of this program.”
