STEM is all the rage in schools these days. It stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, fields that students, particularly female students, are being encouraged to explore.
High school girls will have an opportunity to do that for free Nov. 9 in Cleveland. The WOW STEM Conference will include women speaking about their careers in STEM fields along with hands-on activities for the students.
The conference will take place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. that Saturday at the International Women’s Air & Space Museum, inside Burke Lakefront Airport. The keynote speaker will be Marla E. Pérez-Davis, acting center director of the NASA Glenn Research Center here in Cleveland.
Students who want to attend must complete an application and pay a $5 reservation fee by Nov. 1. The fee will be returned during event check-in.
