A panel of distinguished speakers encouraged
the young women to pursue careers in STEM


King’s High School Cyberknights presented the Women in STEM conference in Shoreline on October 15th at CRISTA's Schirmer Auditorium.

STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

The women in STEM conference was designed to show young women that they too can rock the STEM field. Through inspiring speakers and joining with like-minded ladies, we hope to spark a passion for the STEM field in the hearts of young women from all around the world.

Lauren Stroemel created and ran the event.

The women in STEM conference was inspired by the gender gap in the STEM field. 

“I’ve always been passionate about getting more women interested in STEM because of the struggles I myself have faced and overcome,” said Cyberknight Lauren Stroemel, who created and ran the event. 
“I wanted to help encourage the women and girls that are interested in STEM so they don’t lose hope and drop something that they might be gifted in. 
"What better way to inspire young ladies than to connect with other women who face similar trials, but hold the same passion in their hearts?"

Deb Limb, former Director of Structural Engineering
at Boeing, was the keynote speaker


Keynote speaker Mrs. Deb Limb, the former Director of Structural Engineering at Boeing, along with a panel of experienced STEM professionals shared their experiences as women in the STEM field. They gave advice to the next generation of women entering STEM through a question and answer session.

It was a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the STEM field from experienced professionals and to fellowship with other women with a passion for STEM.

King's High School is located in Shoreline.
