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, January 21, 2023. Our theme this year is The STEM Guardians of the Galaxy, highlighting astronomy, aerospace engineering, and galactic exploration, but also focusing on social responsibility, environmental protection, sustainability, and innovation in every field. 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.
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.
