Discover STEM Careers and Mentors at Women in Science

Interested in learning more about career and education pathways in science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM)? Then don't miss our Women in Science Conference September 9 at Northwest Florida State College in Niceville. At the event, guests will have the opportunity to hear from women in professional STEM fields right here in Okaloosa County, as they enlighten our audience about their careers and deliver advice (think a mini TED Talk). This is an excellent event for students of all ages and genders to receive firsthand advice and information from local STEM professionals.

Our speakers this year include:

  • Katrina Benzrihem, Chemist at Plasmine Technology

  • Caroline Stewart, Chief Nursing Officer at Fort Walton Beach Medical Center

  • Jerri Coomes, Service Advisor at Emerald Coast Harley Davidson

  • Jennifer Galloway, Director of Sensor and Electronic Solutions at BAE Systems

  • Camryn Kruger, Emergency Operations Center intern and student at the University of Vermont

  • Samara Potter, Electrical Engineering student at UWF

This year, our speakers will discuss why they decided to join the STEM field, some of the highlights that make their careers rewarding, and even how they have overcome challenges as women in STEM. Along with a brief intermission to allow guests to mingle with our speakers, the event will also include a Question and Answer panel with all our speakers. Guests can use this time to ask any or all of our speakers questions they have about their careers, pathways, and educations. Past events have helped young students find mentors to help them through their career and educational pursuits, so if you're curious about what its like to work in STEM, this is definitely an event you want to attend. Check out photos from our previous conferences in the slideshow below!

Our event is held in the Student Services Center (Building 400) on the Niceville campus of Northwest Florida State College. You'll be able to find us in the Raider Cafe and Lobby. We'll also be providing light refreshments at the event, so be sure to arrive by 5:30 p.m. and plan for an inspiring evening discovering STEM careers and advice on how to enter the field. Tickets for adults are $10, and all students are free, but students will still need to register for the event to ensure we are not over capacity. Get your tickets today!
