Presenter: Kayt Sukel, a passionate traveler, science writer and mother While the U.S. continues to face high unemployment rates, many American companies can’t fill open STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) positions fast enough. Study after study demonstrates that women are woefully underrepresented in these areas — and may be missing great opportunities for career success. So why aren’t more women pursuing STEM careers? This talk will discuss the stereotypes and the realities of STEM careers; what companies, consortiums and universities are doing to try to inspire more women into the math and sciences (both good and bad); and explore why math and science really is an "everyone" thing. Program is targeted for girls ages 7-14, but all are welcome. Talk is included with Science Center general admission.
