Hello, I was exploring your website and I think it is a great resource. I am planning a STEM career fair at my daughter’s high school in Lansdale, PA. I am a parent volunteer with our Home and School Association (PTA). I am also a molecular biologist. I believe that there are so many opportunities for students in STEM areas and I want to introduce students to the some of the many jobs that are out there. This is our first STEM career fair. I want to make this event exciting and motivating for the students…I am contacting you to ask permission to make copies of your “job snapshots” to give out to the students at our STEM career fair in October. Thank you very much.”—Donna C.

Hi, Stem Jobs™. First, want to say I love the magazine! I was in the high schools last school year and received hard copies of the first and 2nd issue. I only grabbed a few when I left that position, and wish I took more! I was wondering if I could get the hard copy of the magazine sent to me.
