GEMS club, or the Girl Engineers, Mathematicians and Scientists group at Naperville Central High School, recently held their fifth annual Women in Stem Workshop to hear from female professionals in that field.
Girls from sixth through twelfth grade attended the panel and were able to ask questions to get a jump-start on their career interests.
“Seeing that these fields really do need women, and I think that girls really need to be inspired and get the push to commit to these fields,” said Lucy Wang, Committee Chair for GEMS. “This workshop is so inspiring because we have so many successful women who made it into these fields.”
Panelists included an electrical engineer, doctor, pharmacist and a physicist who all shared their experiences of what it’s like working in a male dominated field.
