A Perspective in Identifying and Mentoring Tennessee’s Renewable and Sustainable Resources - Its Youth
National STEM programs are often characterized as introducing youth to the wonders of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math via courses, display exhibits, and experiments as a basis for encouraging them to pursue a career in a technical field of study.
