3rd Annual Washington State STEM Signing Day!

Our third annual STEM Signing Day, in partnership with Boeing, is just around the corner! We are looking for inspiring high school seniors from across Washington State to join us!

 

Washington STEM and Boeing continue to closely monitor the spread of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) in our state and across the globe. Our hearts go out to those who are affected, and to the families of those who have lost loved ones. 

The health and well-being of all 2020 STEM Signing Day participants remain our top priority, and we are closely following guidance from health officials. At this time, 2020 STEM Signing Day is planned for May 6, 2020, however, we will continue to monitor the evolving situation and update as needed.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to Jayme Shoun at jayme@washingtonstem.org.

What: STEM Signing Day is a day where students publicly commit to pursuing STEM — whether through a 2-year degree or 4-year degree.
