Invitation for Webinar [EASC]: IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) Student-Teacher and Research Engineer/Scientist (STAR) Program

IEEE R8 Pre-University Works (PUW)Sub-Committee in collaboration with IEEE R8 Women in Engineering (WIE)invites you to a webinar on the WIE STAR program.

IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) is dedicated to supporting professional women within their careers and inspiring young girls around the world to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). IEEE WIE developed the STAR Program in 2000 to address the growing concern that girls are discouraged from careers in mathematics, science and engineering at a young age. This educational outreach program promotes involvement of IEEE members with local junior high and high schools to inspire a positive image of engineering careers. Through a one-to-one interaction of WIE volunteers with a Teacher-Student Team, the goal of STAR is to create a technical support network for teachers and a mentoring program for the students.

Attend this webinar to learn how you can change the world by participating in or organizing a STAR event.
