State Legislators, education leaders, and SLC Stars mascot “Buster” joined Boeing and STEM Action Center officials at the State Capitol for Utah’s first annual STEM Signing Day.

Utah STEM Signing Day, powered by Tallo, recognizes and celebrates the next generation of STEM talent from around the state. Just like college signing days for athletes, students sign a letter of intent to pursue a two- or four-year degree in a STEM field after high school.

“We are excited to work with Boeing to elevate and recognize Utah students for their commitment and achievements in their STEM education pursuits,” said Dr. Tamara Goetz, STEM Action Center director. “We know that these students will solve the problems of today and innovate for the challenges of the future.”

The opportunity was open to all Utah high school seniors intending to pursue STEM degrees this fall, and candidate selection was facilitated by Tallo.com. Nearly 50 standout STEM seniors were chosen to participate in STEM Signing Day.
