Did you know that women are underrepresented in many science and engineering occupations? Well, on Tuesday May 23rd, twenty female students went to TeenTech at Stockton University to explore careers in science, technology, engineering, and math. Students were invited to engage in laboratory, engineering, and math workshops giving them confidence-building experiences in a real college setting. In the CSI workshop, students had to solve a homicide using evidence and critical thinking skills. Students also explored the neurosciences through a workshop titled "Brain Games" in which they played games developed by graduate students at Stockton University. As educators, we can encourage our female students into these STEM careers by providing positive role models and hands-on experiences that can build their confidence.
