The third annual Women in Science Symposium was held on September 19 at the Heritage Night Club at Woodloch Resort. It was hosted by the Wayne Pike Workforce Alliance and the Lacawac Sanctuary& Biological Field Station.
The purpose of the event was to give students, like women, minorities and other underdeveloped groups, information on STEM career paths, which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics education. Students met with representatives from local colleges to discuss career options, hear presentations from female, working professionals and had the opportunity to speak with these professionals after the presentations finished.
Female students in grades 8 through 10 at Western Wayne along with other students from various local districts attended the event.
