Attendees will enjoy inspiring presentations by women in the STEM field, including Jasmine Myles, Bio-Consumables Production Manager for Agilent Technologies in Folsom. Students will also enjoy STEM-related activities, including:

  • programming a Cutebot (a robot kit for education) to move and interact within the environment
