Presenter: Cassie McIntyre, Director of Corporate Partnerships, FIRST

FIRST is excited to present the 2018 Women In STEM Panel and Workshop. Interactive, engaging, empowering, inspiring, and collaborative are just a few words to describe this year's newly revamped event. Women enhance the value of science, technology, engineering, and math and they contribute tremendously to STEM fields. Women in STEM have contributed to some of the most important discoveries and technological innovations in STEM. Let's celebrate the accomplishments and the journey of professional women in STEM, while inspiring and motivating GIRLS to LOVE STEM! The goal of this workshop is to provide young women the opportunity to interact with women in STEM.

The 2018 Women In STEM Panel and Workshop can be a life changing experience. The workshop is 2 hours and will include a panel Q&A to give participants an opportunity to ask questions of women in STEM. The panel will consist of a diverse array of women from various backgrounds related to STEM. The second hour of the workshop will include small group hands-on activities in which participants will be able to interact with the STEM professionals.
