Shaping the Future of Healthcare with CPASS

You don’t need to be a scientist, physician or an engineer to have a rewarding career in STEM. Today’s and tomorrow’s employment opportunities are growing faster than non-STEM occupations – 24.4% faster. CPASS encourages its students to reconsider STEM-focused careers before they think they can’t or won’t succeed in these fields. Every day, we introduce middle school, high school and college-level students to different STEM courses and subjects so they can explore a range of exciting opportunities and set lifelong goals for themselves.

CPASS students will discover the benefits of STEM go beyond tech to mobile apps that create more efficiency, medical health records, robotics, diagnostics and data management, artificial intelligence (AI) and Internet of Medical Things (IoMT).

With the help of our customized database, we can help students throughout Illinois to learn about and find STEM- and STEAM-focused camps, programs and resources. In turn,  they can focus on multiple growth opportunities and better define their career futures.

We are always looking for qualified “STEM/STEAM Team” members to enhance and expand on our vision and share their STEM and STEAM knowledge with our students.
