King’s has STEM conference Oct. 15

Oct 14, 2016

The Cyberknights of King’s Schools in Shoreline presents a Women in STEM conference Oct. 15 in Schirmer Auditorium.

The conference is designed to expose young women to the STEM (science, technology, engineering mathematics) field.

The Women in STEM conference was inspired by the gender gap in the STEM field.

“I’ve always been passionate about getting more women interested in STEM because of the struggles I myself have faced and overcome,” said Cyberknight Lauren Stroemel.

“I wanted to create an event that will help encourage the women and girls that are interested in STEM so they don’t lose hope and drop something that they might be gifted in.”

Keynote speaker Deb Limb, the former director of structural engineering at Boeing, along with a panel of experienced STEM professionals, will be sharing their experiences as women in the STEM field and giving advice to the next generation of women entering STEM through a question and answer session.

The conference will run from 1-4 p.m. Check in will begin at 12:45 p.m.

Space is limited. Parking will be available at King's Garden Gym, NW 195th Street SW and Greenwood Avenue North, Shoreline.
