Can you spare time for a one-hour lunch this semester to visit with high school girls at local schools? Micron Foundation invites panelists for Women in Technical Careers (WITC) to visit local schools. Many high school girls who may be interested in STEM fields don’t have a good feel for what professionals in these fields actually do. Your sharing your work, research, and career journey with them could open their eyes and their minds to opportunities they had not yet even imagined.
Faculty, staff and student panelists are welcome. Pizza lunch is provided by Micron Foundation. For more information about WITC and volunteering, contact Pat Pyke in the STEM Station at firstname.lastname@example.org or 208-426-1987.
