SRAC STEM Career Fair on September 3‏

Can you be a classroom speaker at the Career Fair for the Southfield Regional Academic Campus (SRAC) on Tuesday, September 3?  Or, would you please forward this to people you work with to see if anyone else is interested?  We would really appreciate it.
SRAC is particularly interested in speakers that can talk about Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) careers, STEM academic decisions—like which college you attended and why, and WHY it is exciting to be a contributor to STEM initiatives in the U.S. and/or abroad.  One way would be to present a small amount of information and then hold a good question & answer session.  Or show them something exciting that you are doing at your work that involves STEM.  Anything you can do to get kids to think and talk about opportunities would be great (interactive works well). 
You may sign up for one session or more—it is up to you.
We have availability:
9 a.m. – 10 a.m.
10 a.m. – 11 a.m.
11 a.m. – 12 noon
12 noon – 1 p.m.
1 p.m. – 2 p.m.
Please respond directly to Michelle Starks, Assistant Principal, with a cc to me.  Contact either of us for questions.
