STEM Gems #GiveGirlsRoleModels


Join us for an interactive panel discussion that will enlighten and empower girls and young women to pursue careers in STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math! You'll meet exceptional women from a diverse set of STEM careers and learn about the unique journeys that led to their respective careers. You'll understand what they do, how they make a difference in the world, and how they help people using STEM. You'll walk away with advice, guidance, and to-do’s specific for girls and young women to help jumpstart their STEM journeys. As a bonus, you'll take home some STEM Gems swag that includes the 44 STEM Gems and STEM careers featured in the STEM Gems book!
