Our goal is to get students to understand that the path to their careers and success is not always a straight line; to highlight the broad possibilities for them with STEM degrees, outside of the traditional or obvious pathways; to think about their STEM education in a way that they may not realize; and to encourage them to persist despite challenges they will encounter.
