ATLAS is a great event. I brought my Girl Scout troop today, and these girls are 9th through 12th grades. I told them what STEM is and they were excited to see what career opportunities are available to them. We had four other events to choose from today, and the girls chose this one.

MdBio’s events help students realize that science is a friendly environment, and give students a chance to see all of the STEM career options they have, which can be cool and fun. Students can see that they really can work with all of the things they learn about in class.

I want to be a veterinarian, and I got information about vet schools and about what being a veterinarian is like. This event has been really fun for me and my friends.

My son is in 10th grade, so it’s time that he start thinking about what he wants to do for a career. The ATLAS event is perfect for him. He was able to explore a lot of different careers and talk to colleges about what types of programs they offer. He’s thinking about aerospace engineering, so the seed has been planted!

It allowed me to see that even as a high-schooler I can do research and do something useful. It also gives me more motivation to study science and biology.
