Women in STEM Panel at Quincy High School (Quincy, WA)
Inspire IGNITE Students from Quincy Middle School and Quincy High School during an IGNITE Panel at QHS: 403 Jackrabbit St, Quincy, WA 98848.
IGNITE aims to increase gender diversity in high-wage/high demand STEM fields, such as technology and engineering. Quincy School District serves a diverse student population, with high percentages Latinx students and students whose native language is Spanish. Women, nonbinary, transgender, agender, and genderqueer professionals who represent these perspectives are highly encouraged to sign up as Panelists to share their stories and answer student questions!
Following the 90-min Panel, students will participate in a brief computer-based activity. Volunteers are encouraged to remain on site for the activity, though this is optional.
This is an incredible opportunity to change an IGNITE student’s life! After signing up as a panelist, volunteers are required to review our 10-min Panelist Training Video at least once per school year and attend a live, interactive Virtual Panelist Coaching Session if they have not attended one in the past.
The total time commitment is about 2 hours of pre-event preparation for new Panelists and 30 minutes of preparation for returning Panelists, in addition to two hours for the event itself.
Approximate time commitment:
New Panelist: 4 hours – 2 hours prep (training, coaching, materials review) + 2-hour event
Returning Panelist: 2.5 hours – 30 minutes prep + 2-hour event
