On Saturday, January 27, hundreds of sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders from throughout El Paso county will get a taste of careers in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) at the seventh annual Adventure for Your Future health sciences fair.
The event, hosted by Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso (TTUHSC El Paso), is an effort to build interest in the health sciences at a young age.
The one-day event exposes kids to a hands-on science environment and teaches parents ways to encourage their children toward the STEM fields. To register, click here.

The free workshops will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., with a welcome message by El Paso Mayor Dee Margo at 8:45 a.m.
