Advancing Tomorrow’s Leaders in STEM (ATLAS) is a college and career readiness symposium that provides a space for students typically underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to connect with business leaders, colleges, government, and potential employers.
Since 2013 MdBio has hosted six ATLAS events, engaging over 1,000 participants in meaningful dialogues about STEM career options and the educational pathways required to reach those career goals.
Emergent Volunteers spent the day educating and motivating students who may want to pursue a career in science. We did not only advise the students on the importance of obtaining a college education but getting real world experiences as well to better themselves for the future. Overall, the event was a great success. Many students visited our booth to seek important information that could potentially benefit them for a lifetime.
