STEM Forums

STEM Forums are half day events that bring together STEM researchers, entrepreneurs, and practitioners who share with high school students how their innovations will change the world and what they have learned through their experiences. Students work with college mentors to develop a new product, service, or problem-solving innovation that they pitch “Shark Tank” style to their peers. This experience encourages students to develop an entrepreneurial mindset that will help them prepare for their future and which students will use throughout the Believe in Ohio program.

Eleven STEM Entrepreneurship & Innovation Forums will be held across the State of Ohio in October, November, and early December 2019, with additional Forums planned to be held during 2020 in Northeast Ohio and Southwest Ohio.
