This spring, Scientista will be hosting an inaugural research symposium
at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, MA on Saturday, April 5th 2014.
The Scientista Symposium will be a one-day conference and poster
symposium for undergraduate women in STEM. This is an invaluable
opportunity for a college woman such as myself to listen to
inspirational talks, network with professionals from across industries
and peers from across the country, and to potentially present her
research on a national platform.
ABOUT THE SYMPOSIUM
Scientista Symposium is a unique, one-day event that will bring 300
campus women in STEM together to listen to inspirational talks and
panels, network with peers, departments and professionals, and present
their original research on a national platform. Our goal is to unite a
group of intelligent, dynamic, and diverse group of women in STEM to not
only gain inspiration, but to develop skill sets that will help them
succeed on their career path. This year’s theme is “Scientistas Speak
Up: The importance of communication in STEM.” The Symposium is complete
with keynote talks and workshops from science celebrities, like Elise
Andrew, founder of the 10 million-fanned Facebook page, IFLS, and
inspirational professionals from across industries, from academia to
medicine. ALL AGES AND GENDERS WELCOME!
