Stony Brook University’s Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) program and Brookhaven National Laboratory’s Brookhaven Women in Science will present the “Girl Power in STEM: Make it Happen!” symposium on Saturday, March 7, from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm in the Charles B. Wang Center, Lecture Hall 2. The event will bring together Stony Brook faculty, Brookhaven Lab scientists and other women science professionals to educate students, aspiring scientists and engineers, and the community about careers in the STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).
“This event will help up-and-coming young scientists learn first-hand about women’s experiences in STEM careers,” said WISE Director Carrie-Ann Miller. “Our dynamic set of speakers and panelists will share stories that will help inspire female high school, undergraduate and graduate students to pursue their scientific interests educationally and professionally.”
The itinerary includes lectures, panel discussions and a speed networking session. Attendees will learn what it is like to spend a day as a woman scientist or engineer and what kind of challenges these professionals face. The audience will also learn about the education and experience required for these positions. Q&A sessions will be part of each panel discussion.
