N.C. A&T Boosts Student Interest in STEM Careers with SciTech Week

Jordan Howse

EAST GREENSBORO, N.C. (Feb. 20, 2019) -- North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University’s College of Science and Technology (CoST) will focus on the next generation of innovators during its 2019 SciTech Week, March 11-15.

The theme for the event is “STEM Expansion: Increasing Motivation, Awareness, Access, Preparation, and Purpose.” The week consists of visits by middle and high school students who will engage in hands-on STEM demonstrations and activities facilitated by CoST students and faculty, as well as Carolina Biological Supply Company.

The purpose of SciTech Week is to educate and expose students to STEM-focused career pathways. The projected job market for STEM-related careers is almost limitless for today and tomorrow’s economy. In order to position underrepresented minorities for such competitive opportunities, students must feel encouraged to train in STEM fields.

Each day, CoST will host events aimed to introduce students to the disciplines and organizations in the college and employers across the country, including three new programs.

One of the week’s most notable programs, the Women in Science and Technology luncheon for high school and community partners, will close the week on Friday, March 15. The luncheon will feature Tashni DuBroy, Ph.D., executive vice president and chief operating officer at Howard University.

EAST GREENSBORO, N.C. (Feb. 5, 2019) – Ten thousand K-12 students are expected at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University April 9-10 for the 10th annual Energy Day, which this year will showcase the Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Traveling Sc
The fair will run from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. both days at N.C. A&T’s BB&T Stadium. School groups will be welcome from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. with the fair open to schools and the public through 5:30 p.m. Admission is free, but groups larger than 10 are requested to register online, via e-mail at or by calling 336-256-2406.

“In this 10th year of Energy Day, we wanted to do something really special that would bring in more students than ever before to experience the exciting and growing developments in the field of energy,” said CERT Director Greg Monty. “We’re delighted to partner with Oak Ridge National Lab and believe students will have an unforgettable experience at this year’s Energy Day.”

Consisting of six carnival-style interactive trailers, the colorful Oak Ridge traveling exhibit allows students to explore sustainability, energy efficiency, transportation, renewable energy, extreme science and more in a fun, hands-on environment. Making their first appearance in North Carolina, the Traveling Science Fair trailers can accommodate up to 1,000 students per hour, meaning the Guilford County Schools students and others from surrounding areas will have time to truly appreciate the experience.

More than 100 scientists, A&T faculty, graduate students and staff will be on hand to guide students and members of the public through all that this year’s Energy Day has to offer along with teams from participating companies such as Duke Energy and the A&T Center for Advanced Transportation and Mobility.

Energy Day is produced by N.C. A&T’s Center for Energy Research and Technology (CERT), an interdisciplinary center that fosters collaborative research and development of new energy-related technologies. The event began in 2009with just 200 students.
