About the Event

Many of the jobs that are important now didn't even exist a few decades ago. How can today's teens anticipate and prepare for the jobs of the future — jobs that can solve the global problems we're facing and preserve our world for future generations?

MxD will be participating in the next Teen STEM Café, where attendees will hear from experts in cutting-edge fields about the jobs that are available now — and the jobs they anticipate in the coming decades. Learn about the STEM, communication and critical thinking skills that will be necessary in the careers of today and tomorrow. MxD Director of Cyber Laura Elan will be a featured panelist.

Hear about fields such as:

  • Food systems innovation and sustainability
  • Green energy
  • Manufacturing innovation
  • New battery technology
  • Automation and robot systems
  • Drones
  • Space exploration
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Biotechnology

Chat with experts, meet fellow teens who are interested in science and technology — and enjoy free pizza! Click the register button to learn more.
