What’s New @ SheTech?

 

We had a busy September kicking off the new school year!

The 2021-2022 SheTech Student Board got together in person for the first time since 2019 to hear important news about upcoming events and start getting ready for the SheTech Explorer Day coming up on March 1, 2022. Girls had a chance to hear from guest speaker, Seraphine Kapsandoy-Jones PhD, RN who is the Chief Clinical Information Officer at Intermountain Healthcare, sharing her inspirational story of just getting out there and trying new things. Hosted at Album VC, Student Board members got to play with some hands-on tech toys and STEM experiments. Start watching for posters in the halls of your school, announcements, and social posts to stay up to date on activities and club information. If you’re not yet on the email list for SheTech, be sure to connect with the Student Board Members from your school and sign up here!

Of the finalists, there were eight award recipients and one Student Pathways Award winner. You can read more about the event and the difference these women make on the Women Tech Council website.
