LibrariesBOSSBOSS Conference
BOSS 2022

BOSS is an annual spring conference for high school students in east Tennessee; we reach nearly 100 9th-12th graders each year. This year’s BOSS is scheduled for Saturday, February 19th, 2022. Our vision is to bring information on STEM careers and exposure to university life to historically underrepresented populations, and get them excited about STEM and being a VOL. This year’s theme is What is Your STEM Superpower?

BOSS is a growing online resource for teachers and students dedicated to STEM learning. This work includes conferences, workshops, and connections to other STEM agencies.
