LET'S GET STEM-U-LATED!
Outreach and serving the community are very important to our organization. With the belief that no one should be denied exposure to STEM careers, we created "Full STEAM Ahead!". Perceptive partners with other STEM professionals to facilitate workshops and classes surrounding various disciplines and skills in a fun and engaging atmosphere. We teach coding, game development and robotics, just to name a few.
Students are shown how STEM is infused in their everyday lives. The primary focus is to target demographics of youth whom are grossly under exposed to the subject matter.
I have learned over the years that it is imperative to develop a solid network of support as a minority in the STEM workforce....it was sort of a sisterhood, the one place where you weren’t the only girl. As a professional, being apart of Dallas SWE has shown me the importance of advocacy for young women and the impact of being present for them....This organization personifies my belief wholehearted that once armed with knowledge, one can have a solid impact on the world around them and make effective changes right where they are, regardless of their age, gender, and socioeconomic background.
