The Eighth 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 Empowered with Math and Science (GEMS) program.

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. This is an excellent event for all those looking to explore STEM opportunities right here in Okaloosa! Light refreshments provided.


This year, our speakers will discuss what inspired them to pursue careers in STEM fields, their role models, groundbreaking career moments, how they have overcome challenges as women in STEM, and offer advice to young women interested in STEM careers and educations. All speakers will be a part of a panel discussion toward the end of the event 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. Learn more about our event in our blog.
