FOURTH ANNUAL WOMEN IN
INTERESTED IN STEM SCIENCE?
The Fourth Annual Women in Science Conference is a celebration of women in all STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) professions. Hosted by the Emerald Coast Science Center, the evening will consist of inspirational presentations from professional women in STEM careers. Proceeds benefit the Emerald Coast Science Center's Girls Engaged in Making (GEM) Workshops.
All ages are welcome, especially middle school and high school students looking to discover careers in STEM. Guests will have a chance to mingle with the speakers and other guest professionals. Food and drink provided.
This year, our four professional speakers and one student speaker will discuss what inspired them to pursue STEM degrees, offering their advice to young women interested in following this path, and even note their own female STEM role models. All speakers will be a part of a panel discussion after intermission to take questions from the audience. This is an excellent event for students of all ages and genders to receive firsthand advice and information from local STEM professionals

-Jobina Johnson, System/Software Engineer at Boeing
-Crystal Simmons, Senior Quality Engineer at BAE Systems
-Tanya Gallagher, GIS Coordinator for Santa Rosa County and Adjunct Instructor at University of West Florida
