Girls STEM Summit


Girls STEM Summit Statewide is a one-day summit designed by Massachusetts non-profit, Jr.Tech, Inc. for girls in grades 8-12 to explore STEM career paths. This event, exclusively geared towards females, will be held on Sunday, June 14, 2015 at Regis College in Weston, 8:15 am - 4:15 pm.
 
As with the past six Girls STEM Summits, this program focuses on females in grades 8-12 who are interested in or curious about exploring careers in STEM fields. Included in the day-long event will be a keynote speech from a local female leader in a STEM field, career path workshops led by local, female STEM professionals, exploration of high school and college preparatory skills for STEM programs and degrees, and the opportunity for girls to connect with other young women who share their academic interests.
 
The key goals of the STEM Summit are to educate young women on various STEM career paths through hands-on breakout sessions, to encourage students to continue studying these disciplines throughout high school in preparation for college degree programs, to inspire through interaction with female professional role models working in STEM, and to demonstrate that a STEM career is attainable.
