Jenks Public Schools in Jenks, Oklahoma recently hosted Women in STEM: Mothers and Mentors, which brought women engineers into the school to share their experiences with female students who may want to pursue similar careers. The one-day event featured a panel discussion and a design challenge.
“This is a great opportunity for these young women to see that their future career doesn’t have to be those jobs traditionally associated with women,” said Project Manager Jenny Sallee. “It’s also a great opportunity for me and the other career women here to give back to the community, and hopefully inspire some future engineers.”
Jenks Public Schools offers Project Lead The Way courses through Tulsa Teach. Project Lead The Way is the nation's leading provider of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programs. GarverGives has made supporting STEM-based initiatives a priority and we’re proud to partner with schools through events like Women in STEM.
