2nd Annual ‘Cool Women- Hot Jobs: STEAM Career Fair’ for BDS Students Inspires Girls Grades 6- 12

The National Coalition of 100 Black Women – Baltimore Metro Chapter celebrated Women’s History Month by organizing the “Cool Women: Hot Jobs STEAM Career Fair” for BDS students on Wednesday, March 6. Participants demonstrated how a design background can be instrumental in a STEAM career.

In celebration of Women’s History month, BDS female students in grades 6 – 12 had a chance to connect with over 20 exhibitors in this event designed to celebrate and introduce collage and career options in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM).  Students had the chance to meet successful women in STEAM career tracks and explore related career fields.

Presenters from various companies and universities throughout the Maryland area shared their knowledge and experience about their profession and entertained student questions, demonstrated or invited them to participate in an activity that reflected the various skills that they would need in the work fields. We would like to thank Baltimore City Community College CADD Club, Northrop Grumman, the Baltimore Police Department, DeLaine’s Media, Linda Crites, PHD, Morgan State University, and others for coming out and engaging with our students. Special thanks to Ms. Shandria Proctor and her students from the Milford Mill High School Robotics Team for a dynamic display of technology, problem solving and teamwork. The Milford Mill students were awesome…they knew their stuff and were engaging, approachable and represented their school and their city well.
