When it comes to English Language Learners who are mostly first generation college students, the journey travelled must not be ignored.  Learn how the ELL Department from New York City Schools is collaborating with STEM professionals to bring STEM careers to their classrooms and their hearts.  Students don't have to wait for career day to explore STEM options by using a variety of technologies like video conferences with career champions, 360 Virtual Reality experiences and videos. As a result students turn the interviews into eBooks to help fellow students learn about the careers.
