Meet women in STEM from across the commonwealth

We want to give a quick additional shoutout to some of the good work happening in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) fields in Pennsylvania. You may remember Girl Scouts in the Heart of Pennsylvania (GSHPA) partnered with the Pennsylvania Commission for Women to provide an evening of STEM learning on Nov. 16, 2022.

The Women in STEM event brought Girl Scouts to the Pennsylvania State Museum to participate in STEM activities and learn more about STEM careers.

The commission received 15 video submissions from women across the commonwealth showcasing the work they do, their educational journey, and why they chose a career in STEM. Learn more about these amazing women in the three videos below and then check out our Women in STEM event recap here on the GSHPA Blog!
