Arthrex Supports Collier County Schools' 5th Annual iSTEM Conference
Arthrex was honored to take part in Collier County Schools' 5th Annual iSTEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Conference once again this year on Saturday, October 3, 2015. Associate Employee Relations Specialist Hayley Wonka presented students with an overview about Arthrex and our STEM-related career fields.
"The group was very engaged about the business as a whole and possible employment in the future," shared Hayley. "I was able to provide support to those students interested in internships and co-op opportunities, along with answering questions regarding our apprentice program."
More than 700 teachers, parents, students, community members and school district staff participated in 25 exciting break-out sessions where they got hands-on with science, technology, engineering and math. Participants engineered robots, built solar cars, learned about sustainable gardening, integrated the arts into STEM, and so much more. Students from high school career academies also demonstrated their STEM-related work.
This is the fourth year Arthrex has supported the iSTEM Conference. Click here to view the iSTEM Conference's video footage to learn more.
