WAHS Students Attend Women in Science Symposium
Forty Wallenpaupack students attended the 3rd Annual Women in Science Symposium at Woodloch Resort. Hosted by Wayne Pike Workforce Alliance and Lacawac Sanctuary, the event provided a unique opportunity for students to hear the professional and personal experiences of successful female science and environmental leaders. These STEM professionals encouraged students to pursue careers and take part in career conversations. Additionally, students participated in a Q & A with the panelists and could meet with representatives from colleges, universities, businesses and organizations offering valuable STEM program information.
