(West Plains) – These students from Alton High School were among the estimated 350 area high school and junior high/middle school students who attended the April 5 STEM Expo at Missouri State University-West Plains.

The event was designed to give students and their parents an opportunity to learn more about careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) from area employers who hire such workers and educators who train those workers. Organizers said representatives from 10 area businesses and agencies, Missouri University of Science & Technology in Rolla, Missouri State University in Springfield, and six offices and departments at Missouri State-West Plains visited with the students.

Organizers said they were pleased with turnout for this year’s inaugural event, and they hope to host another one in the future. They also thanked all who helped with the event, explaining, “We couldn’t have done it without you.”
