Tuesday February 16: Careers and Curiosity in Math and Science

Location: E. J. Martinez Elementary (401 W. San Mateo)

Once again our Santa Fe AAUW branch is planning on holding this STEM event. Please consider participating as a presenter or as a volunteer. Your time commitment would be from 8-12. Please contact Lina Germann if interested.

Please help recruit career women who might be interested in presenting and representing a career with a hands-on activity. Any career can be a career that uses Math and Science.

Careers & Curiosity in Math and Science is an elementary school event with a majority of women presenters, all using math and science in their careers. This format of career fairs has the unstated goals: (1) to give GIRLS role models who are women with careers using math and science, (2) to show the boys and girls how exciting and useful math and science in their future career, (3) to send the message that girls can do math and science.
