IPC APEX EXPO 2020: STEM Student Outreach Program a Success


Reading time ( words)

Nine groups of STEM students from the San Diego, California, area spent their day at the San Diego Convention center to attend the IPC APEX EXPO 2020 exhibition. Two hundred students were immersed in the world of electronics industry manufacturing and assembly.

During one event planned for them, the students had a chance to participate in a hands-on soldering track creating wearable buttons to take home with them.

Students toured the IPC APEX EXPO show floor, where they rotated through various education tracks, receiving real-world technical skills training in soldering, coding, design, and assembly of PCBs. They also enjoyed a career panel during lunch and a presentation by Dr. John Mitchell, IPC president and CEO. This event is organized by the IPC Education Foundation.
