Tech Women Professionals Will Talk to 8th and 9th Grade Girls About Careers in STEM

Tech Women Professionals Will Talk to 8th and 9th Grade Girls About Careers in STEM

A dozen female professionals from the NH Tech industry are coming to Concord High School on Nov. 16, to talk to 8th and 9th grade girls about careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). The event gives young women who are interested in or curious about STEM careers the chance to sit down in small discussion groups where they can meet and ask questions of a professional female role model. There also will be some hands-on projects.

The TechWomen Ambassador program is cosponsored by the State of NH and NH TechWomen/TechGirls, a community of female professionals enthusiastic about technology and about supporting girls who are exploring STEM as a career or area of study. The Ambassador program was designed to provide professional female role models to young girls, and to give professional women a way to connect, educate, and explore ideas around career development, technology initiatives, and innovation.

Any 8th or 9th grade girl from Rundlett Middle School or CHS who wants to attend this career information event should:

❏ Fill out this form
❏ Talk to your school counselor,
❏ Come by the CRTC office to sign up
❏ Rundlett students should see their 8th grade school counselor

There are a limited number of seats for this event, so be sure to sign up ASAP to reserve your spot.

This event is sponsored by the Concord Regional Technical Center as part of its continuing efforts to connect students to careers and to promote gender equity. The CRTC is a great place for students to explore career pathways through applied learning, worksite visits, advance study opportunities, and connections to industry professionals. To learn more about what the CRTC has to offer, and to check out our website, or Facebook page, or drop by the CRTC office, pick up a brochure, and talk to one of our staff.
