STEM Industry Profiles

Last year the WIB hosted a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Summit that brought guidance counselors from local area high schools and employers together. The summit focused on the importance of STEM careers for North Shore employers and the skills needed to obtain these careers. Participating Employers included Analogic, Mircoline Surgical, Applied Materials, Fleet Machine, North Shore Innoventures, New England Biolabs, and EBSCO Information Services. Guidance counselors all had one-on-one time with representative from each company. After the event, the WIB produced STEM Industry Profiles based on the information given by our employer representatives. The STEM Industry Profiles are listed below and are based on the line of business of the employers who attended the event. These profiles provide a resource for youth development professionals to share with teens on STEM careers available on the North Shore.
