High School Programs
High school students will hear about workforce and educational opportunities. Speakers include experts currently working in medicine, engineering, and design. They will recieve insight into the skills and mindset necessary to train for and perform in careers like these.
The Expo Center will be open throughout the evening. There, student work and club projects will be on display, and representatives from various higher education institutions will be available. Here, you'll get quick looks at some of the exciting things happening in Garnet Valley and also hear about the opportunities that STEAM experiences open up in life after school.
You can also access a variety of information about STEAM through the other links on this page, thanks to the hard work of Garnet Valley High School students. They've created these pages and are participating in STEAM Night with the goal of encouraging more students to become interested in STEAM and the related opportunities available throughout our district.
Within these pages, you will find information targeted to elementary, middle, and high school students. There is information about courses, clubs, and careers for each school, described on a level that the students will be able to understand. In the future, more content will be added, including games or experiments (with videos of high school students performing them), and video testimonials from STEAM professionals. If you or someone you know works in a STEAM related career and would like to do a video testimonial, you can reach us using the "Contact Us" tab on the side. If your career is not on the site, we will write a description for it once we have the video.
