About the National Youth Leadership Forum: Pathways to STEM
Future STEM Leaders
NYLF Pathways to STEM is a unique learning experience for bright, forward-thinking elementary school students who will evolve into next generation innovators, engineers, doctors, software developers, and scientists.
Students learn by doing during six days of hands-on simulations and workshops, while making new friends and having unforgettable adventures.
Virtually all career fields today require a solid foundation of STEM. That’s precisely why these are the fastest growing areas of study, and the reason that STEM professionals are in the highest demand in the United States and throughout the world. Early exposure to these fields can set today’s kids on a path to success by giving them the tools needed to make informed decisions about the future.
NYLF Pathways to STEM is a fantastic opportunity for curious and high-aspiring young students to explore the frontiers of 21st century science and technology.
