September 11, 3 to 4:30 p.m.—Virtual Tour & Career Panel with SDG&E
We all need electricity, especially in this virtual world. Have you ever asked yourself where the power comes from and who works at power companies to make sure we don't have any outages and that we can supply the earth with green and sustainable electricity? Join female STEM professionals at SDG&E as they give us a tour of their work place and tell us all about the different career opportunities in the energy business sector. 


September 23, 3 to 4:30 p.m.—Have You Ever Wondered What It's Like To Be An Engineer?
Have you ever wondered what it is like to be an engineer? Join Solar Turbines, in a fun interactive session that shows you what Solar Turbines is all about. We will have an executive keynote speaker fill you in on their journey to the top, an engineering activity where you will get to put your brain to the test and finally a Q&A panel with 5 women who will answer all your questions on what it is like to work at Solar Turbines!


September 28, 3 to 4:30 p.m.—Hands-On Workshop: DNA Discovery
Have you ever seen what makes you, YOU? Join this workshop and discover what your genetic code is made of! Your DNA carries your genetic information, which determines everything about you, like your eye color, your height, and what type of hair you have. In this workshop we will perform an experiment where we extract DNA from strawberries and make it visible to the naked eye. You will get to chat with a molecular biologist who studies how our cells divide, and combines art and science to create fashion and promote STEM. We will talk about what life is like as a scientist, how research can make our world a better place, and how you can use your own passions to bring creativity into science. 


October 2020 events will include an AMA (Ask Me Anything Session), a career panel with STEM professionals from GENOMATICA and another engineering workshop with Solar Turbines.

More details and events will be added throughout the year!
