Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics occupations are expected to experience rapid growth in the coming decade; however, a gender gap persists in STEM occupations worldwide. To help address this gap, Chattanooga State Community College will present Women in STEM, to provide opportunities for students to explore STEM careers virtually from home or school.
Co-sponsored by the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century (Perkins V) Act and Regional Center for Nuclear Education and Training, Chattanooga State will present a total of 12, 45-minute to one-hour long informative and fun sessions that include demonstrations throughout the week of Feb. 22-26.
