Dr. Adriana Ocampo, NASA Planetary Geologist, delivered a keynote address describing the life of a planetary geologist and offered words of wisdom to the young women in attendance.
A panel discussion with women currently in STEM careers followed. The girls were given an opportunity to ask questions of the panel to delve deeper into the possibilities of a career in science. The common theme: Follow your passion. Find out what you love and create a career from it.
The conference ended with a mentoring session exposing the girls to a variety of STEM careers in Chemical Engineering, System Design Engineering, Food Sciences, Physics, Optometry, Mathematics, Social Psychology, Geochemistry, Hydrogeology and Environmental Sciences.
