Temple Grandin to Headline STEM Career Showcase for Students with Disabilities

The STEM Career Showcase for Students with Disabilities is an annual educational event where attendees meet role models with disabilities who have thriving careers in STEM fields. This year, students will hear from world-famous scientist Temple Grandin, who is a highly regarded expert in the field of animal behavior and celebrated speaker on her experiences with autism.

Register to reserve your seat.

Event Details STEM Career Showcase for Students With Disabilities Wednesday, Nov. 9 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, Raleigh, NC.

Requirements For 6th-12th grade students with any disability (performing near or at grade level). Pre-registration is required, but the event is free.

Dr. Grandin is a proponent of developing young people’s minds by introducing interesting concepts in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), which is where we’ll find the great jobs of tomorrow. People with disabilities are currently underrepresented in these fields despite recent advances in the accessibility of information technology and other tools used by working professionals.
Students will leave the event with a better understanding of the many professional possibilities available and the inspiration to pursue STEM careers. This is an intimate event with space limited to 350 people, and we’ll take registrants on a first-come, first-served basis.
