Watch online: Inspiring future women in science conference

Science suffers from an image problem. Students who love the subject often have no idea just how many career paths it opens up. The “Inspiring Future Women in Science” event aims to change that.

When it comes to opening doors to future careers, there are few keys more powerful than science. From applied robotics in health care to biomimicry in architecture, the lessons learned in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) can be applied almost everywhere.

To celebrate International Women’s Day, Perimeter Institute is sharing the promise and potential of STEM education with hundreds of high school students each year at the “Inspiring Future Women in Science” conference.

The annual half-day conference is an opportunity to break down stereotypes about who, exactly, can be a STEM professional. The event features talks from women in a mix of STEM industries, a panel discussion, and more. This year’s event includes presentations from a photonics researcher, a doctor, the CEO of an environmental science company, a forensic pathologist, and more.
