ENVISION: Supporting Young Women in STEM
Each year, our office holds an event designed to empower young women to pursue a career in science. This is done through hands-on workshops led by STEM experts from a wide variety of disciplines. Participants leave knowing there are many different types of science careers!
The primary goal of ENVISION: STEM Career Day Supporting Young Women is to help girls and young women see themselves in the STEM fields. However, ENVISION is open to all students who are currently in grades 6 to 12.
Throughout this experience, ENVISION attendees hear inspiring speakers, learn from Penn State scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and technology experts, and participate in informal conversations with students and professional scientists.
Keynote speakers for ENVISION are selected through the I AM STEM speaking contest. This contest is designed to help students in Penn State’s Eberly College of Science develop and share their stories so that they can inspire the next generation of scientists and STEM professionals!
