TUSKEGEE, AL (WSFA) -

Tuskegee University is encouraging youth to choose STEM career paths, by providing an open house type of event on February 8.

This free and open to the public event, is being held at the Renaissance Hotel & Spa at the Convention Center. During this time students will get the opportunity to meet teachers and researchers from various universities, and create an opportunity for networking, collaboration, sharing of information and building relationships.

There will be several people of interest there for students including elected officials Chris Lawson, executive director of Alabama EPSCoR and Tuskegee University acting president, Dr. Mathew Jenkins.

The science, technology, engineering and math or STEM education is a program at the forefront of President Barack Obama's education initiatives. In a 2012 State of the Union address, he said America needed to train 100,000 STEM teachers over the next 10 years.
