Wings of Women Mentoring Event for High School Girls Interested in a STEM Career Hosted by the International Women's Air and Space Museum Cleveland
Attention All High School Female Students:
Please join us from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on November 9, 2019 for a FREE conference hosted by the International Women’s Air & Space Museum (IWASM) located inside Burke Lakefront Airport.
The Wings of Women (WOW) conference is geared towards high school female
students interested in pursuing STEM career fields. We bring in professional female mentors from various STEM fields, who spend the day speaking with the students about how they got to where they are today. There are also hands-on activities that go along with each of these fields to help spark further interest. This is a great opportunity for young ladies to be inspired and empowered to pursue whatever their hearts desire.
We are excited to announce our keynote speaker will be Dr. Marla E. Pérez-Davis, who serves as the deputy director of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's John H. Glenn Research Center in Cleveland. In this capacity, she shares with the center director responsibility for planning, organizing and managing the agency-level programs and projects assigned to the center.
Upon arrival, a light breakfast will be available and lunch will be provided later in
the day. Upon departure, each student will receive a bag of information from various colleges and universities about their select STEM fields.
Applications are required for each student wishing to attend. The deadline for
applications is November 1, 2019 along with a $5 reservation fee. This fee will be returned upon check-in on the morning of the event. Cash or check preferred. PayPal and credit card payments will not be returned. A parent signature is required in order for each student to participate.
