About the Event

GiSTEM is hosting “Thinking Big 2024,” a half-day, in-person event is tailored for 300 high school students in Richmond and Petersburg to dive into the realm of technology for interactive learning outside of the classroom. Students participate in hands-on activities and workshops facilitated by professionals from various backgrounds and industries. The event is strategically designed to establish a pipeline of young talent primed for future careers with leading organizations. This year's event will focus on manufacturing. With the expected manufacturing job boom over the next decade in the mid-Atlantic region along the East Coast, many companies are establishing operations in the Richmond and Petersburg areas. It is essential that we expose local students to these opportunities and adequately prepare them for future manufacturing roles.
