Stem @ GF

We aim to connect GlobalFoundries with the education community, while inspiring today’s students to learn more about the field of semiconductors. Semiconductors are everywhere in our lives. Think about all the things you interact with every day that have semiconductors (also known as computer chips) in them: smartphones, tablets, video game consoles, smart speakers, headphones, automobiles, just to name a few. We are passionate about showing students how these semiconductors are made — and the many kinds of jobs it takes to make them!
