Bethel to Host Career Fair for High School Students Involved in STEM

Bethel College will host a career fair for 100 to 150 11th graders from Penn-Harris-Madison School (PHM) and other area schools on March 7, from 9 – 11:30 a.m. in the Middleton Hall of Science Building.

Sheri Campeau, instructor of engineering, is coordinating the event along with Bethel College and the Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) academy at Penn High School. STEM is a weeklong series of courses for grade school students that involve science and math courses.

“The students scheduled for this event are already in the STEM Academy at Penn, but they need to understand why they are studying the courses they are currently in. They can be tough courses,” says Campeau.

11th graders from PHM will be given the opportunity at this Career Fair to meet professionals in STEM related careers. They will also get the opportunity to become familiar with Bethel’s campus and interact with some of the students with science and engineering majors.  

Bethel College is an accredited Christian college offering associate, bachelor’s and master’s degrees in more than 70 areas of study. The current enrollment of more than 2,000 includes students from 34 states and Puerto Rico, 19 countries, more than 25 denominations and 16 percent from culturally diverse backgrounds.
