Organizers say getting students into the field is important, the National Center for Education Statistics says young adults with degrees in STEM fields tend to have higher incomes on average.

"The earlier we can get students excited about this area the more likely they're going to be going into this area. Its great for the students. It's a very lucrative opportunity for them if they go and get a job in this and its great to work on solving some really great problems out there."
