STEM Career and College Conference - Jupiter, Florida
Saturday, September 20, 2014 from 8:30 AM to 2:00 PM (EDT)
At the Tiger Woods Foundation (TWF), we believe every child deserves a shot at college. Our programs break the cycle of poverty through college-access opportunities for low-income students. At Tiger Woods Learning Center campuses across the country, scholars in grades 5-12 are immersed in an interactive STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) curriculum. Here, they make the connection between school and career, while planning a road map to college. The Earl Woods Scholarship Program is an unparalleled network providing admissions counseling, college scholarships, dedicated mentors, specialized internships and vital workshops. Our bright young scholars, many of whom are first-generation college students, are succeeding at prestigious universities such as Georgetown, Stanford, UC Berkeley, Columbia, UCLA and Harvard.

The TWF Career & College Conference focused on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) is a half-day of hands-on specialized instruction, offering a range of career and college preparation workshops for middle and high school students, their parents and educators.
Organizations will host workshops and/or have a booth at our expo. The primary goal of the STEM Career Conference is to inspire students to learn about various industries in these fields and discover possible career paths. Parents are also invited to attend and learn how to support students in their desire to pursue college for a STEM career. There will be a customized track of concurrent workshops for students and parents. The program is open to students in 7th through 12th grade and parents.
