Riverside Middle School and Dr. John Kaup from Furman University's Science Department partnered to provide all 8th-grade science students the opportunity to explore a multitude of careers in Health Sciences and STEMS (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). 

Furman students from the following science clubs:  Biology, Health Science, Neuroscience, and Physics spoke with RMS students about what they were majoring in, the types of classes they needed to take to help prepare them for their chosen career, the types of educational degrees, certifications, and shared with students with hands on activities that they were doing in their college level classes.
