What is the STEM for Girls program?
This event brings together middle school girls with ACU and ATEMS faculty members for a morning dedicated to exploring possibilities in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). There will be fun, hands-on activities that allow you to engage in a variety of STEM fields and have the opportunity to interact with female professors and university students in small groups.
Who are the directors?
STEM for Girls at ACU was founded by Dr. Jennifer Shewmaker, professor of psychology, and Dr. Sarah Lee, associate professor of biochemistry. The STEM for Girls leadership team has expanded to include Dr. Jennifer Huddleston, associate professor of biology, and Dr. Lori Houghtalen, assistant professor of engineering and physics. All of these women have impressive experience in research and teaching in the science fields, and are passionate about inspiring young women to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math.
