STEM College & Career Fair | Santa Clara Convention Center

 More than 150 college expected to attend.   The fairs are free and open to the public. Secondary school students, parents, and educators are encouraged to attend, particularly those with a high interest in STEM fields along with those who are curious about what STEM majors could offer them. Here are some tips on making the most out of attending!
The goal of the STEM College and Career Fair project is twofold:
• to provide a forum for colleges to share STEM-related educational opportunities to prospective students and their parents
• to allow representatives from industries and non-profit organizations to educate students and parents on STEM-related career opportunities.

You can search for more College Fairs in San Jose, San Francisco and Oakland using this link. Pre-registration is requested but can also be done on site. Marian’s Note: I recommend pre-registration because it is easier and also so that your information can be share with the visiting colleges/universities, even if you cannot attend the event.

Why Should Students (and Parents) Attend College Fairs?

Why should students (and parents) attend College Fairs? Read an exert from my Silicon Valley Mom post, College Fairs in the San Francisco Area

College Fairs are a great way to connect with a large number of colleges in the least amount of time. Our favorite result of attending college fairs is that we (my son and I) felt that colleges were chasing us as opposed to the other way around. One of the advantages (and disadvantages!) of living in the SF Bay area is that our ‘local’ schools are Stanford, CAL, Santa Clara University, and UC Santa Cruz. These are some of the most popular schools not only in California but the nation.

Another advantage of registering at a college fair is that your child’s information (should you choose this option) is shared with colleges throughout the US so colleges that are looking for students that fit your child’s profile will get your information and can then contact you/them. In this way, your child can learn about schools that they may not have initially considered. So your child should register for the fairs even if they cannot attend. Click here to view the entire post.
