IPC in partnership with IPC’s Education Foundation is pleased to bring the STEM Outreach program to you. This program is designed to encourage students to consider a career in the electronics industry by spreading awareness of electronics manufacturing as a career choice.
"What I liked about the event was the exposure to plenty of engineer mentors, as well as the opportunity to learn about the different machinery used for coding. Also, everyone was I interacted with were nice and were approachable." Giericko, Grade 12 - Morse High School Engineering Academy
“The goal of the program is to expose students to see, feel, touch and experience what this industry is all about,” said Colette Buscemi, IPC’s senior director of education programs, “and there is no better way to do that than putting tools in their hands, so they can see up close just how the equipment works.”
The IPC Education Foundation expects to engage the emerging workforce, improve the perception of the manufacturing industry, prepare the talent pipeline, and to offer scholarships to deserving students, “It is an effort to expose a new generation to the potential of rewarding careers in an industry that requires workers with critical skills,” added Buscemi.
