 PAST EVENTS


Femme in STEM (May 13, 2017)

Dozens of girls from 20 schools across the Denver metro area gathered at DU's Colorado Women's College on May 13 for a fun-filled day of science learning and exploration.

The event, called Femme in STEM, is the brainchild of a group of five DU alumnae from the Division of Natural Sciences & Mathematics who were alarmed by the underrepresentation of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Research shows that girls are equally as interested in STEM subjects as boys early on, but that this interest declines significantly around junior high.

"We want to help mend the leaky pipeline," says Faith Lierheimer, a master's student in the Department of Biological Sciences who helped launch the group while she was an undergraduate. "We're missing out on a chunk of brainpower that could advance science in ways that we can't imagine."
