On a cold and rainy Tuesday evening, Kellenberg students traveled to Rockville Centre to take part in Molloy College’s STEM Day. Upon arriving, the students and their peers attended a presentation in the Madison Theater, which covered brief overviews of seven different categories of STEM careers ranging from Allied Health Sciences and Biology to Computer Science and Mathematics.
From there, the eager students went into two consecutive breakout sessions with Molloy professors and alumni to learn more about their potential career paths. The smaller breakout sessions provided a one-on-one experience and allowed students and their parents or teachers to ask any questions they might have had.
The Molloy College staff encouraged the students to learn more about STEM jobs online and explore their passions to determine what branch of STEM they should consider studying in college. The professors also urged the students to take part in STEM-oriented activities over the summer, such as Molloy’s own biology summer camp. Molloy College’s STEM Day was a great way for students to get a taste of their possible future career and consider pursuing science as a lifelong profession.
