HIGHLIGHTS 

2019 Fall

STEM Sisters Partners With Career Hub 

To kick off the fall semester, STEM Sister coordinator, Muna, hosted a career exploration workshop sponsored by USM's Career Hub. In addition to learning about critical career resources, students got a chance to discuss some of the countless pathways available to STEM majors, and practice their interview skills.  

 

STEM Sisters Partners with Baxter Academy to Host Day of Code!

STEM Sisters and students from Baxter Academy hosted Day of Code events at both King and Lincoln Middle Schools in November. This is the third year in a row that we've partnered together, and each year we've managed to showcase some incredible work from local students and professionals alike. Some highlights include a student-built muon detector, a robot that shoots basketballs, a coding maze, and an ozobot programming station.
