Women in STEM careers share insights on November 16

NNHS students had the opportunity to hear the experiences and perspectives of women working in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers during the first Women in STEM Day, on November 16.

The day was organized by students, with help from teachers David Bennett and Malinda Tupper, and featured both individual speakers and panel sessions at a series of optional assemblies. Women from the community, including both North graduates and parents, described their own career paths and details of their current work and research areas. They also shared their views about how to increase women’s involvement and success in STEM fields.

The event drew enthusiastic audiences, which numbered in excess of 300 students and teachers at every block during the day.
