The 23rd Annual Edward W. Powers Women in STEM Career Workshop
March 21, 8:30 AM – 3 PM
YSU Campus

At Youngstown State University the Women in STEM Career Day was developed to provide positive role models and affirmative experiences in science to women. The Women in Science Career Day is offered each year at no cost to area middle and high school students. At this workshop, the girls meet with women from the community who work in scientific fields and participate in interactive laboratory demonstrations in various areas of science.

Many of the women who have participated in this career day have volunteered their time and contact information. Students who have questions about various careers or are looking for shadowing opportunities or internships can contact the women who have volunteered as mentors.  It is hoped that Youngstown State University will continue to play an active part in encouraging women to experience the enjoyment of science and to enter into careers in science.
