To pull off another successful event, STEM Career Fair Coordinator Penny Anderson is looking for individuals and representatives of companies and colleges who are willing to to tell students about STEM careers.

"The backbone of the fair is really the parents in our community," Anderson said.

She is looking for a wide variety of STEM professionals to participate in the fair, such as researchers, healthcare professionals, actuaries, scientists and engineers.

Participating professionals are encouraged to bring props or items that can draw attention to their booth and help initiate conversations with students.
