UBWISC to present ‘STEM for Everyone’

Published November 2, 2017

UB students will talk about STEM topics in layman’s language during “STEM for Everyone: Stories from Students,” a free event presented by the UB Women in STEM Cooperative (UBWISC).

The presentations will take place from noon to 1 p.m. Nov. 9 in 210 Student Union, North Campus. Those attending are encouraged to register in advance.

Undergraduate and graduate students will give five-minute presentations on topics related to science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The presentations also will address inclusivity of women and other underrepresented groups in the STEM fields.

“STEM for Everyone” is the latest event presented by UBWISC, an interdisciplinary coalition of women volunteers from across the university that aims to increase awareness of women in STEM fields and encourage greater participation of women at UB in these fields.

The cooperative also is joining with Cornell University to present “The Next 10 Years: Helping STEM Students Thrive,” an online series of lunchtime lectures that focus on increasing the participation of undergraduate women in STEM. The next lecture is scheduled for Nov. 8.
