As a high school junior, the thought of going to college and selecting a major can be daunting. Imagine if professionals in fields that you were interested in majoring like science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) were at your fingertips and the sky was the limit in the questions you could ask. 

Recently, San Diego County high school juniors got this exact opportunity at the fourth annual Business and Youth (BAY) Expo, hosted by Explore Solutions, a local non-profit that is committed to making career and college preparation more accessible to high school students.
