GRAD Lab was a fun event designed to inform and motivate students from underrepresented groups in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) fields to understand the importance of a graduate degree. Students learnt how to successfully apply to graduate school and find funding opportunities. A panel of speakers provided their insight and experiences on graduate school and beyond.
GRAD Lab encouraged young people to consider graduate engineering or science education, and to apply for the GEM fellowship. Focusing on the global importance of research and innovation, life-long career benefits, and real world role models, the symposium helped each student envision his or her future as a technology leader, successfully apply for a GEM fellowship, and gain entry to a graduate STEM program.
