The 71st Annual Celebration of STEM gathers local STEM advocates to inspire and celebrate local STEM heroes. Join STEM Forward and others passionate about STEM on Tuesday, February 13, 2024, at the Brookfield Conference Center. We will celebrate local STEM success by presenting The Spirit of STEM Award, presented annually to honor organizations that have significantly impacted STEM education in southeastern Wisconsin, the STEM Forward Engineer of the Year Award, and the Young Engineer of the Year Award, which have been presented annually since 1953 to outstanding contributors to the engineering profession from the greater Milwaukee area. This event includes dinner, a keynote speaker, and a celebration of the award winners. We are excited to announce our Celebration of STEM keynote speaker, Dale Kooyenga, President of the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce (MMAC). Be one of the first to hear Dale’s thoughts on growing capital investment, jobs, and improving the quality of life in greater Milwaukee as he assumes the Presidency of MMAC in January 2024.
