    Please save the date for Tuesday October 3rd from 10:00am-11:30am for the inaugural Northwestern STEM Network networking event!

    RSVP Now:

     STEM stakeholders across the region are invited to meet in person with OSIT and the Regional STEM Network Committee. During this event, we will complete an activity around the concept of transitioning participants across the region from one STEM experience to the next. We will also dedicate time to network with others. In that vein, there will be an opportunity to share contact information as well as program handouts.

     We expect this event will spark ideas and relationships among the region’s STEM stakeholders.

     Please share this save-the-date with anyone you believe should be included in this activity. Reach out with any questions
