Mark your calendars! We have a great line up of speakers this semester!

We are kicking it off on August 22 with meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner, you don't want to miss it! If you can't make it to Southern or Northern Wake Campuses you can tune in on your phone or laptop.

The purpose of the Speaker Series is to expose students to wide variety of STEM career options, demonstrate real-world application of classroom concepts, and to connect with STEM professionals.
