Motivating our youth to pursue greater enrollment in math and science courses in high school and consider a path into post secondary education in STEM/STEAM fields.” The conference was made possible by the collaboration between the Chicago Teachers’ Center at Northeastern Illinois University, Columbia College Science and Math Department and the UBMS program.
