Students and Teacher Encourage Women in STEM

Lindy Dale, Staff Writer

Mrs. Cannon has encouraged her D.C. English class to work on service projects relating to one of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (S.D.G.s) which are: 

  1. No Poverty
  2. Zero Hunger
  3. Good Health and Well-being
  4.  Quality Education
  5.  Gender Equality
  6. Clean Water and Sanitation
  7. Affordable and Clean Energy
  8.  Decent Work and Economic Growth
  9.  Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure
  10.  Reduced Inequalities
  11. Sustainable Cities and Communities
  12.  Responsible Consumption and Production
  13.  Climate Action
  14.  Life Below Water
  15.  Life on Land
  16.  Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions
  17. Partnerships

Juniors Calei Loy and Molly New have teamed with Mrs. Dougherty on a project she began over the S.D.G. Gender Equality.

The project will include a variety of female speakers talking about women in  STEM careers (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). The goal of the project is to encourage girls to take STEM classes in the future and consider a job in STEM. 

The first of these speakers will be Katie Hornack, a transportation engineer. She will give her presentation on Nov. 6 during the second half of PowerHour in the Library.

She will be the first of many speakers on the topic.

For more information contact Mrs. Dougherty in room 108, Calei Loy or Molly New at their student emails.
