Summer STEM Symposium
Students in the Summer STEM program, a six-week intensive that immerses current high school sophomores and juniors in hands-on engineering design and problem-solving, spent their morning in the Great Hall on Thursday, July 26, hearing from a range of students and practitioners in various STEM fields. The symposium was organized by Elizabeth Waters, associate director of STEM outreach, and featured rising senior in Cooper’s mechanical engineering department Amanda Lombardo; recent architecture graduate Yaoyi Fan; School of Art alumna and design lead of interactive experiences at IBM Watson Jenny Woo; and Ari Melenciano, candidate in New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Graduate Program. Each guest presented her experience arriving into STEM fields from different paths and answered questions for high school students interested in pursuing degrees in the fields.
