The 2015 Conference for Young Women in STEM is a smashing success!
A beautiful Thursday morning at the usually quiet and peaceful Frick Chemistry building at Princeton University, turned into a bustling hub of science and technology for a day on March 19, 2015. Over 450 young women, in grades 7-10, and their chaperones came from all over NJ, PA and even MD, to attend PPPL's 14th Annual young Women's Conference in STEM. With over 25 exhibits, the hands-on session was crowded as the attendees excitedly learned some new science and technology; many attendees donned PPPL's Emergency Service Unit's turn-out gear, while others learned to dance the Macarena with NAO The Robot, programmed by the Girls Who Code Science Club, from Robbinsville High School. Throughout the day, in addition to the hands-on exhibits, conference attendees toured cutting edge labs around campus, while others sat-in on an awe-inspiring neurology lecture and chatted with a panel of female scientists discussing their career paths. Their day conlcuded with a keynote lecture from Profesor Kersten Perez, of Haverford College. The event was a success... until next year!!
Many, MANY thanks to our exhibitors, speakers, and volunteers who worked tirelessly to make sure the event went off without a hitch!
