General Public

Please join us for a screening of Big Dream at Monday, June 15, 2015 at 10am in Education building room 162.

Big Dream is a documentary film that follows the stories of seven young women in technology fields around the globe. Each story takes a look at these young women's ambitions and how they overcome personal challenges to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. We hope to use this inspirational film to excite young women, their families, and friends to the possibilities inherent in science and technology.

After the showing of the film a brief group discussion will take place, during which students will talk about their experiences in STEM. Later during the academy local organizations will be on hand to talk with students and parents about STEM opportunities in the community.

The event is hosted by WCE Junior Seahawk Academy.
