Have you ever wondered how you end up with internet on a plane? Or how you can get internet service in a remote location? It's provided by a satellite. Did you know that you have to purchase a parking spot in space in a specified orbit? Have you thought about what it takes to manage a satellite/internet service and all the engineering and science that goes into it? ViaSat is working to engage in the community with the next generation of the workforce to get high school students excited about their industry so you will consider working for them one day. Let them tell you about their college internship opportunities and job shadowing experiences. Meet an amazing group of professionals.
Join us for a special screening of Ruth Bader Ginsburg! Social begins at 3:30pm and the movie starts at 4:30pm. Tickets are $12/person and proceeds go towards Girls in STEM Denver. Purchase your tickets here and we will see you there!
Girls will test and get feedback on their prototypes and continue to develop them and create an informal pitch to present at our final meeting in May.
We will have an interactive conversation with women working in different disciplines of engineering (i.e. mechanical, electrical, civil) and will test your inner engineer with a fun hands-on challenge!
Teams will get a brief introduction to three different technologies and their application: Scratch, Web Development (HTML/CSS), and TinkerCAD. Students will choose the right technology for their project and begin creating a prototype.
We will reflect on topics explored so far this school year and identify an area/problem of interest. Girls will break up into teams and design a tech-based solution to develop and implement over the next 2 meetings for the first Girls in STEM Life Science Tech Challenge!
Additional information coming soon...
Meet Lynn Riemer, a forensic chemist who will talk about her experiences working in a lab and her many years of work as a chemical expert for the North Metro Drug Task Force. You will also get to test your chemistry skills in our own version of a crime lab!
Join us for an interactive panel discussion with professional women from different engineering backgrounds and how this investigative engineering applies to their work across multiple industries; i.e. consumer electronics, consumer product, defense, oil & gas, healthcare, food & beverage, etc.
