STEM symposium planned Nov. 8

The MdBio Foundation and Tech Council of Maryland will host Advancing Tomorrow's Leaders + STEM (ATLAS), a college and career symposium, on Nov. 8.

The free symposium is meant to encourage students from Prince George's County Public Schools and undergraduates who are usually underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) careers to consider pursuing work in the field. 

Attendees can meet STEM professionals, talk about education and internship opportunities, and learn about advancement opportunities in STEM fields. There also will be a breakfast, awards ceremony and raffles, as well as information booths from area STEM resources. 

The symposium will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the University of Maryland in College Park. Registration is required.
