Whether you’re someone who’s still torn between taking up STEM or another strand, or someone who’s still undecided on what course to take up for college, this is a great opportunity for you to learn firsthand from S&T professionals. This April 30, Compass is having its second installment in helping students navigate their future. It will run from 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM via Zoom with a live broadcast through the event’s official YouTube channel: Check Marks The Spot – UP KEM. This event is free and open to all students from Grades 7 to 12 nationwide. To register, you may check out this link.
With this event, you can be acquainted with the different opportunities for the science and technology field in the country through several talks from scientists and engineers. These talks will shortly be followed by an aptitude test to further assess your capabilities and give an insight on which track suits you the most.
Compass is a set of seminars that serve to guide students in choosing their career tracks. With the implementation of the K-12 program, Compass aims to promote the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) academic track as a potential area of specialization to high school students. It is one of the sub-events of Check Marks The Spot (CMTS) led by UP Chemical Engineering Society, Inc. (UP KEM).
The first installment of Compass was held last year, October 31, where students from all over the country attended to learn more about the science and technology field. If you’re curious to learn about what transpired in the event, the livestream can still be accessed here.
CMTS is an umbrella project composed of four sub-events—Cares, Compass, Collab, and Catalyst—that aims to promote STEM to the Filipino youth to inculcate the scientific mindset essential for leading our nation in exploring new horizons.
