We Do STEM Career Exploration

We coordinate on-campus NOVA Career Exploration Days for K-12 and College Students, engage in onsite activities with local STEM organizations and provide professional development opportunities for current NOVA students to support their current and post-collegiate internships and job search strategies.

The COVID-19 response restrictions and guidance from local and state leadership has made it necessary to re-task our traditional in-person STEM Career Workshops and Activities to a virtual setting – and we have plenty of exciting upcoming events for you to engage in. We’re looking forward to seeing you online!
