The Discovery Center teamed up with IF/THEN, an organization that empowers current STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) innovators to inspire the next generation of pioneers, to diffuse gender disparities that exist in the engineering field through DHDC’s newest She Engineers exhibit.
She Engineers will be on display until December 31st of this year and was funded through a prestigious grant from the Association of Science and Technology Centers.
This new exhibit features women ambassadors in the STEM field:
- Erika Anderson,
- Catie Cuan,
- Dana Bolles,
- Xyla Foxlin,
- Ana Maria Porras,
- Ritu Raman,
- Ciara Sivels,
- and Helen Tran.
This exhibit consists of a series of banners and posters designed by The Works Museum. Guests can read about each womans’ experience, expertise, and inspiration in the engineering field.
As a local leader in unique STEM education in the Texas Panhandle, DHDC prioritizes access to hands-on STEM experiences for those with significant barriers to these opportunities.
In presenting the She Engineers exhibit from IF/THEN, we are able to inspire young women to pursue careers in the STEM field, as well as help to achieve gender parity, particularly in the field.
DHDC will also be hosting their popular Code Your Future program this month, emphasizing women in STEM and women who code. For more information on this and the new exhibit pieces, visit DHDC.org or call 806-355-9547.
