We’re trying a little something new this week! Please excuse the unfortunate thumbnail…
Our society’s image of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math fall towards men. The Draw-A-Scientist Test shows that young elementary school children see scientists as solely men in lab coats creating monsters and explosions. As a woman in STEM, the issue of women’s underrepresentation and partition in any of these fields is disheartening. Over the weekend, I was able to attend the Scientista Symposium, which helped expand my view on women in the STEM fields.

I was able to attend the event thanks to the generosity and support of Professor Melanie Villatoro and Perkins Peer Advisement.
Stop by if you need any help! (I have a solid hold on statics, my fellow CMCE students, so come through!)
