2020 STEM Conference
Regretfully, due to the current COVID-19 virus status, we have to cancel the STEM conference on March 21st.
The safety and well-being of the girls, presenters, volunteers, club-women and community are our highest priority. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us. NJWC do not anticipate being able to reschedule this event this year. We look forward to another amazing conference next year. Thanks and stay healthy everyone.
The GFWC Northboro Junior Woman’s Club will present the 13th Women in STEM Conference for Middle School Girls on Saturday, March 21st, 2020 at Algonquin Regional High School. This conference is an opportunity for these young women to be exposed to and experience vocations in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math.
After an opening keynote presentation, the girls will attend four 40-minute interactive hands-on career workshops. Presenters represent fields such as Forensic Chemistry, Pharmacy, Architecture, Nursing, Veterinary Medicine, Teaching, Engineering, and Medical Professions. The presenters explain what they do in their occupation, share different tips on courses of study & ways to train for their profession, and provide hands-on exploration/activities.
A luncheon follows the workshops and offers an opportunity for the students and presenters to continue discussions in a more informal setting.
