Organized by SFA’s College of Sciences and Mathematics and the STEM Research and Learning Center, the February STEM Business and Industry Speaker Series event will be held from noon to 1 p.m. Monday, Feb. 27, in the Math Building, Lecture Room 101.
The series seeks to provide science, technology, engineering and mathematics students an outlet for gaining collegiate and real-world knowledge regarding their respective fields. The series also aims to ultimately connect students with STEM professionals and provide a behind-the-scenes look into their future careers.
A business or industry professional and an SFA STEM student will co-present during each month’s event. Business or industry speakers will share why their particular background in STEM is important to their company or organization. STEM students will share how and why they became interested in their STEM discipline, what drew them to SFA and what they look forward to as they enter into their careers.
The February featured student speaker will be Sam Jentsch, dual computer science and mathematics major, who expects to work at Google post-graduation. The industry leader is Adam Schlesinger, who leads numerous projects at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston.
