An annual event planned for March aims to bring together students, high school engineering teachers, engineers, colleges, companies and others. One goal of the Colorado Springs Engineering Summit is to provide a clear view of possible career paths and educational options that students can pursue in science, technology, engineering or math, also called STEM.

The summit includes a student showcase, a trade show with post-secondary schools and local engineering businesses and speakers.

The 3rd Annual Colorado Springs Engineering Summit is set for 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. March 9 at the Freedom Financial Services Expo Center. For more information, visit
