8 GROWTH SECTOR STEM Core participants attended the 2023 U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Cybersecurity and Technology Innovation Conference in Minneapolis, MN. These students have excelled in engagement, receiving direct comments from DOE Administrators, Industry CEOs, CIOs and National Laboratory SMEs, on how professional, curious and conversational our STEM Core participants are. An enormous thank you goes out to the STEM student support specialists, advisors and navigators from STEP2NLs STEM Core Forsyth Technical Community College, Central New Mexico Community College and Community College of Aurora.
