9 national labs, 3 Colorado universities join forces for VETS2STEM

Hosted by Colorado School of Mines, the free event Nov. 8 will introduce Colorado veterans to STEM-focused
careers in the defense and energy industries.

Colorado School of Mines, in conjunction with the University of Colorado and Colorado State University, will host an event Friday, Nov. 8 to introduce Colorado veterans to employment opportunities available at national defense and energy laboratories — and the programs at all three universities that can serve as pipelines into those STEM careers.

VETS2STEM is free to all Colorado veterans and active duty military members. The career and college fair will include veteran panels, a special guest speaker, as well as a showcase of the defense technologies on display – and in daily use – at national laboratories across the country. 

The national laboratories participating in the event are Army Research (Maryland), Idaho, Lawrence Berkeley (California), Lawrence Livermore (California), Los Alamos (New Mexico), National Renewable Energy Laboratory (Colorado), Pacific Northwest (Washington), Sandia (New Mexico) and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (California).
