Description

During this session we would like to focus on discussing the wide range of professional careers available to those with a STEM degree, particularly women. 

We are passionate about educating students in STEM subjects because we strongly believe it prepares students for life, regardless of the profession they choose to follow.

It’s difficult to argue the importance of STEM education in today’s society. If you research deep enough you will find that some of the most high paying, and desirable jobs require some proficiency in science or technology.

STEM education teaches students how to approach a problem, create a solution, and test it with unbiased accuracy.

We believe that if you teach students how to think for themselves and give them a framework and process for doing so, you empower them to do so much more, with regards to whichever career bath they decide to take.
