    The North Carolina Business Committee for Education, housed in the Office of the Governor, and the Kenan Fellows Program for Teacher Leadership, housed at NC State University, are partnering with GSK for the emPowering STEM Classroom to Career Conference at GSK's Headquarters.

    The emPowering STEM Conference is part of a larger effort to increase high quality work-based learning across North Carolina to ensure students are prepared to fill the jobs of today and tomorrow.

The conference includes learning labs that will help the participating teachers connect classroom curriculum to real applications in STEM industries.
