Nicole (student and Innovation Center staff) organized and hosted a really successful and well-attended Women in STEM event last week.
The workshop began with an introduction from Nicole, during which she promoted the makerspace and its connection to STEM disciplines. Next up was Megan Pritchett (Internships Coordinator), who shared data about women in STEM fields, and recruited students for our CCCMaker makerspace internships program. Finally, FLC faculty members Joy Fuson (Math), Suha Al Juboori (CIS), Daria Eiteneer (Physics), and Sherry Rogers (Biology) shared their individual experiences as women in STEM fields, and fielded audience questions.
There was lots of enthusiasm in the room, and we’re already talking about what an expanded version 2.0 would look like!
