(Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) Career Fields along with hands on activities in the CLOUD901 Teen Learning Lab and throughout the library for our younger registrants. One of our goals is to foster future leaders. In order to help youth become future leaders, we would like to expose the youth of Memphis to all of the many possibilities life has to offer, particularly in the areas of S.T.E.A.M.

Distinguished S.T.E.A.M. professionals will be on hand at the Career Fair and participants will explore opportunities and demonstrations in architecture, audio visual engineering, cinema, creative arts, medicine, technology and more!.
