Encouraging Participation in STEM fields

Dr. Liliya Yatsunyk and Swarthmore students supervise a workshop for middle school girls.

Students and faculty of our department are actively involved in encouraging young women to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.  Swarthmore College holds conferences where local middle school girls have the opportunity to participate in math- and science-related activities using resources they may not have access to at school. Students, faculty, and other community role-models run workshops and give talks to show young women future possibilities they may not be aware of.
