STEM Fest 2014 will be a diverse exploration of careers with Female STEM Professionals.
Last year at STEM Fest we explored bridge design, learned about the geology of the Hawaiian Islands, practiced our suturing technique, read x-rays, finger printed ourselves, dug for utilities, navigated the skies of Oahu, created canapés with a chef, took vital signs of a patient, learned about creating energy from trash, and touched a real human brain!
This year is GUARNTEED to be EVEN BETTER!!

The 2013 Woman of Distinction honorees are, from left to right, Dr. Elizabeth Ignacio, M.D., orthopedic surgeon, Imua Orthopedics; Sheryl Seaman, Vice Chairman, Group 70 International; and Jan Sullivan; Chief Operating Officer, Oceanit.
The theme of our 2013 Woman of Distinction Dinner is STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). In today’s world, STEM is everywhere; almost every task and activity that we do requires some manifestation of science, technology, engineering or math. A 2012 study found that about half of all girls feel that STEM is not a typical career path for girls. Though girls are overwhelmingly interested in STEM, 57% of them feel that if they pursued a STEM career, they would have to work harder than a man just to be taken seriously.
Our 2013 Woman of Distinction honorees have broken the gender barrier, showing that it is possible for women to pursue STEM careers–and to pursue it successfully. This year we honor three women who excel not only in their careers, but also as community leaders who inspire their colleagues and our next generation of female leaders.
