During the conference, students will learn about Bates’ STEM programs, meet faculty members, hear from a panel of women in STEM, and participate in one of 2 workshops:

  • Cybersecurity – Have you ever wanted to send a secret message to someone that only he or she will understand? Learn basic encryption to send your message with a secret key and only the person who knows that key can decrypt it. Find out how to do this by creating your own cipher wheel! 
  • Sheet Metal Technology – Are you creative? Do you like working with your hands and machines? Could you create a three-dimensional drawing? If the answer to these questions is yes, then a career as a Sheet Metal Worker could be right for you! Get an introduction to fun and creative career!
