Huge Success TTAG “Women in STEM” 2017!
The Women in STEM Forum held on Sat., 2/25/17, at the Redondo Beach Library was a wonderful success! The four varied career women presenters were each enthusiastic and enlightening, prompting many questions from the audience. Approximately 30 adults and 40 students attended. TTAG member and 8th grader, Khushi K., was the chairperson of the event.
Guests at the Women in Stem 2017
Presenters were: Dilrukshie Cooray, M.D. of Rheumatology at Torrance Memorial Medical Center; Denise Cheyette, DPT, Physical Therapist and owner of the Wellness Bank in Manhattan Beach who also talked about learning how to run a business that gives back to communities; Lauren Tojo, a Test Equipment Project Engineer at Moog Inc. in Torrance; and Ximena Mutis, a UI/UX graphic designer for Symantec Corp., specializing in branding and infographic (icon) design. Her slideshow of her personal albums that she created in elementary through high school really spoke to the girls who could see a connection between art and science.
Additional TTAG girls present (who are holding the AAUW sign in the picture) were: Sabrina, Drunara, Logan, Katelyn, Alexis and Khushi
