team participated in Romeoville Library’s
STEM Fest 2017. Students participated in
hands-on demonstrations from science,
technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) leaders.
According to the U.S. Department
of Commerce, STEM occupations are
growing at 17 percent, while other oc-
cupations are growing at 9. 8 percent.
STEM creates critical thinkers and will

of tubes to tube-plate joints as the primary source, with additions where the
standard requires further clarification or
does not address the topic sufficiently.
These include the constrictions of
use of each joint type; requirements and
practicalities for testing procedures and
qualification of welders; recommendations for the preparation of tubes and
tube plates; guidance on maximum preheat and interpass temperatures; and additional controls on welding parameters
