Glenforest is an International Baccalaureate World School. Many of our Glenforest STEM team members are a part of the IB program. To encourage students to attend Glenforest, we: traveled to 4 middle schools to talk to students in grades 6-8 about Glenforest’s excellent academics and extracurricular activities.
The Glenforest STEM Speakers Bureau held it's first set of STEM talks on November 26 & 28, 2014. The events were held to educate youth on different career opportunities and paths in the medical field. A number of distinguished health and medical professionals were invited to speak to the Glenforest Secondary School student body, to provide insightful advice and details about post-secondary education and career paths in the medical field. Over 400 students from grades 9-12 attended over 2 days. The Glenforest STEM Speakers bureau hopes to inspire future leaders in the STEM field; by informing the youth about the education and career opportunities available to them once they leave high school and allowing them to interact with professionals in the STEM field.

"Wow! The student audience was polite and quiet and great"
"I wish I had had speakers come in to talk to our class when I was in high school"
"Very professionally put together"
"Great event! Very professional and well organized"

"Very informative, excellent for students"
"Students have been talking about the STEM Talks and have been asking us where we can get information on colleges and universities for the programs"
"The STEM talk on Friday was excellent. We were talking about it in psychology today. The information was useful and the students were paying close attention. My sense is that they have lots of concerns about planning their future and that they really need some mentoring from people who are in the workplace. It was a huge undertaking and it is really important. Thank you. I look forward to the next one"
"(STEM) team provided Glenforest with the rare opportunity to interact with specialists from a variety of disciplines, hearing about the challenges and rewards inherent in pursuing careers in these fields. Definitely a meaningful and worthwhile endeavor"
