JAMESTOWN – An annual event that aims to raise awareness for the need for skilled manufacturing in Chautauqua County take place next month at SUNY JCC.
In the past 1,000s of students from area schools participated in the STEM Wars event that features science, technology, engineering and math activities, competitions, local manufacturing technology companies and on-site team building projects.
Middle school and high school students are invited to participate each year, and work for weeks in advance to prepare their projects for competition.
STEM Wars is co-presented by Dream It Do It Western New York and the New York State Technology and Engineering Educators’ Association.
Event officials say there is still room for local manufacturers to participate in the career fair, and room for more schools to sign up. For more information, contact Tim Piazza at firstname.lastname@example.org or (716) 483-1833.
The event will take place Thursday, March 12 at SUNY JCC’s physical education complex at 9 a.m.
