College of Western Idaho (CWI) hosted its annual STEM Out! event on Saturday (Nov. 7) bringing 134 girls ages 10-15 to CWI’s Micron Center for Professional Technical Education in Nampa. The event, which is sponsored by CWI’s Center for New Directions and Professional Technical Education, showcased occupations in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). The event featured 24 unique hands-on workshops that were both fun and educational. Each participant attended six workshops throughout the day.
In all, approximately 150 CWI students, staff, and faculty helped make the event a success. Workshops were presented by faculty and students in both Professional Technical Education and Academic Transfer programs. In addition, approximately 45 CWI faculty, staff, and students volunteered at the event in a variety of roles from group leader to registration.
Thank you to all the individuals, programs, and departments that volunteered to help make this a great event once again.
