PA STEM Coalition Meeting – Dec 16

Posted by PA STEM Coalition on December 14, 2021

The last PA STEM Coalition meeting for 2021, “Industry and the Importance of STEM” will be held on December 16, 2021, 8:30–9:30 AM, led by Betsy Payne, Manager of the Philadelphia STEM Ecosystem. The panel will focus on how industry is dealing with its different needs focusing on their upcoming workforce – present students.  On a recent survey, our Coalition members wanted to hear the “industry side” of the issue.  What are your needs, how have they changed in the last few years? Are you doing things different? STEM can seem intimidating, but there are many opportunities – what are some in your particular area?

Our special guests on the panel will include:

  • Dr. Russell Caspe – Gentex Corp, Advanced Engineering Manager
  • Sherri McCleary – Penn State New Kensington Digital Foundry, Executive Director
  • Gregory Posly – General Dynamics Land Systems, Director of Operation
