Women in Science & Engineering (WISE) Conference

University of Washington Seattle hosted the annual Women in Science & Engineering (WISE) conference on Saturday February 27, 2016.  Per the College of Engineering at UW Seattle, the WISE conference is “a celebration of women in engineering academics and careers.”  It is a day of “educational and professional enrichment brings pre-college, undergraduate, and graduate students together with faculty, administrators, and professional women.”

Lots of great events were held at the WISE conference including a wonderful opening panel of 5 STEM women, several workshops, career resource fair, and a networking lunch.  A few volunteers from UW Tacoma Sciences and Mathematics (SAM) participated in and helped prep for this event: Aron Rigg, Lauren Wugalter and Meg Henderson.  Below are some pictures taken of Lauren and Meg during a demonstration at the conference:
