Students Attend "Young Women in Engineering" Conference

Science Department Chair, Mary Frances Hanover brought five Cushing girls to the MITRE “Young Women in Engineering” conference on Friday, Oct. 27 in Bedford, Mass.

Diana Gao ‘20, Kyra Parris ‘20, Joann Ramirez ‘21, Folake Olorode '19, and Jenna Viglione ‘20 heard a keynote speaker discuss the power of networking. The girls then rotated through workshops over the course of the day. Topics included: cybersecurity, programming using PYTHON, human/technology interaction, and virtual reality/augmentation. All workshops were interactive and hands-on. During lunch, the students talked with female engineers about how they got their start, what education they received, and their current research projects.

It was truly an amazing and empowering day.
