Naval STEM Week: High School Outreach

The UB Women in STEM Cooperative has planned a great outreach program with local high school students to introduce them to STEM career paths in the shipyard and at sea to complement the historic commissioning of the USS Little Rock LCS9 in Buffalo on Dec. 16, 2017.

Wednesday, Dec. 13

The UB Women in STEM Cooperative has arranged for an exclusive ship tour aboard the USS Little Rock LCS9 at Canalside for high school students from UB partner school, Research Laboratory Program for Bioinformatics & Life Sciences to encourage STEM career exploration in a non-traditional setting. Our student group is only one of five student groups awarded this privilege and the only non-JROTC school!

Friday, Dec. 15

The UB Women in STEM Cooperative has scheduled an onsite visit to WNY Maritime Charter School on Friday, Dec. 15 featuring Ms. Jan Allman, CEO of Fincantieri Marinette Marine and Ms. Camille Flaherty, CDR US Navy (retired) as successful women role models. We will be joined by Kenneth Escobar, an engineering/physics student at UB as we explore careers in STEM.
