Students are welcome to explore career options during the 11th Annual Explore Event from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Umpqua Community College gym, 1140 Umpqua College Road, Roseburg.
This free event is designed to introduce students of all grade levels — from elementary school to those attending UCC — to potential careers and educational pathways in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). More than 40 local employers, representatives of UCC and four-year universities will be at the event.
This year’s event will also include information about careers in technology, natural resources, manufacturing and programs from automotive to welding. Free food and prizes will also be available.
More than 400 people attended last year. Registrations will be accepted at the door, but participants are encouraged to preregister ahead of time at www.umpqua.edu/explore-UCC.
