Women of the future: STEM Into Knowledge seminar at Nevada Union High School in Grass Valley

Submitted to The Union

Opportunities to meet women with careers in science, technology, math and engineering fields and the chance to explore those fields through hands-on workshops are on the agenda for the fourth annual half-day ​STEM Into Knowledge​ seminar event for fift​h​ through eight​h​ grade girls.

The event will be held from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday at Nevada Union High School Cafeteria, 11761 Ridge Road, Grass Valley.

STEM Into Knowledge​ is sponsored by Nevada Union's We=mc2 club (Women Exploring Math-based Career Choices) with the support of the Association of University Women Nevada County Branch American.

Created in 2015 as a senior project, ​STEM Into Knowledge​ has continued because of its popularity and success in inspiring middle-school girls to pursue their interests in STEM fields.

At ​STEM Into Knowledge​ fift​h​ through eight​h​-grade girls will be able to attend all three STEM-related workshops — all featuring hands-on experiences. And in small groups, they also will have the chance to meet and hear from STEM career women in fields such as radiology, civil engineering, and veterinary medicine, and will be encouraged to ask questions.

Gracie Suenram, this year's coordinator and We=mc2​ ​ president said, "​STEM Into Knowledge​ is an empowering experience and can introduce girls to many careers they do not know exist or might believe they cannot achieve. Science and technology are the future and new engineers are in constant demand. ​STEM Into Knowledge​ is a wonderful introduction to STEM careers and an enjoyable time as well."
