Schuylerville Students Attend Women in STEM Event

SCHUYLERVILLE — Fifteen Schuylerville 8th graders attended the 2024 “Let’s Go STEM” event at the SUNY Adirondack campus that highlighted opportunities for women in S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields. 

Students participated in three hands-on workshops presented by female academics and professionals, in an effort to help students see themselves as future STEM professionals or spark an interest in pursuing a STEM career.

“From nursing labs, to marine biology and advanced weather forecasting, these were incredible, new educational experiences for our students,” said Schuylerville Middle School technology teacher Mark Belden in a statement. “All fifteen girls enjoyed the trip and we are very thankful to SUNY Adirondack for hosting the event.”
