Passion & Pathways: A New Virtual Series for Teens
The Cambridge Public Library STEAM Academy, in partnership with local non-profit organization Innovators for Purpose (iFp), is launching Passion & Pathways Talks, a free bi-weekly webinar series for teens.
Teens will have the opportunity to learn from designers, scientists, engineers, business professionals and others, who will share the stories and pathways to their careers. Speakers will address questions such as: "What’s most interesting about your job? What was your pathway to your field? What skills are needed to pursue work in your field?" Teens can ask follow-up questions to get an insider's view of possible career paths.
Team members Sue Cusack, Nettrice Gaskins, Ph.D. and Kreg Hanning from Lesley’s STEAM Learning Lab will discuss how developing a maker's mindset can open opportunities never imagined. Halsey Burgund, artist, technologists, augmented reality creator and fellow in MIT’s Open Doc Lab will discuss some of his projects that have taken him around the world. Teens will get an insider's view to possible career paths.
Register below. Zoom login link will be emailed to registrants one hour before the event begins.
This webinar is free and open to the public. We can accommodate up to 100 attendees.
