WiC Events Descriptions 

Monthly Engagement: The WiC Monthly Engagement is an opportunity for females in the department to socialize and network. We always have a great time catching up about life and work over food and drinks! Hope to see you there!

Lunch and Learn: This event is meant to foster scientific discussion among females in the department in a stress-free setting. Students are encouraged to present on any topic (i.e. preparing for a conference presentation, candidacy, something interesting you just want to share with other students) and in any format they want (i.e chalk talk, powerpoint, etc.). This year we will also be having faculty presenting, as well. So, bring your lunch and let's talk science!

KIDS Club: This is the volunteer/fundraising event that WiC participates in every year. It is a program designed to enhance and encourage curiosity and enthusiasm for science, mathematics, engineering and technology. Students in grades 2nd-5th are invited to join our student-centered, hands-on discovery sessions on Saturday mornings from 9 am to 12 pm.
