Danvers students say STEM has changed their career paths

June 07, 2019 / Clea Matt

For Cassandra DiNardo, an introduction to engineering class at Danvers High School changed her entire career plan. I'm pursuing engineering when I never thought I'd be, DiNardo, a senior at the school, told Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito during a student panel Thursday. Polito was in town to announce a $150,000 skills grant for Danvers High to expand its STEM offerings through Project Lead the Way, a nonprofit that designs science, technology, engineering and math curricula for school systems. On Thursday, she visited Project Lead the Way classrooms and talked to students about their experiences. In the fall, Danvers High will start offering programs in business and finances, environmental and life sciences, health care and social assistance, information technology, and manufacturing. For students, it means more hands-on classes or real-life experiences that could steer them toward a specific career.
