“STEM and the Digital World” will be of interest to youth already thinking about STEM careers, but will also be designed to encourage non-science-oriented youth to explore how STEM informs all of society; potentially opening their minds to a career path they never thought about. The webinar program will lead them through an exploration of STEM’s impacts, essential skills for the digital world, and how STEM is contributing to solving other social and political challenges.
