High schools across NH invited to participate
The NH High Tech Council’s TechWomen|TechGirls committee is in planning stages for the Second Annual TechWomen Ambassadors Week 2016 for ninth grade students. This year, the events will take place the week of November 14 – November 18, 2016. The theme is “STEMspiration to Explore STEM Careers.”
This one-day, two- hour event will take place at several high schools across the state. The Governor’s Proclamation of the highly successful TechWomen Ambassadors Week last year included 10 schools at five locations, 400 ninth grade girls, 245 high school attendees and 89 TechWomen Ambassadors encouraging students to seek higher education paths to careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
TechWomen Ambassadors represented various high tech industry sectors including aerospace, robotics, biotech, computing, engineering, green tech and offered their expertise and hands-on demonstrations. The committee wishes to expand the event to include more schools. If your high school has an interest in participating, please contact Carol Miller, committee chair at 603-271-2591 or email Carol at firstname.lastname@example.org.
