The 2020 Women in Science & Engineering Forum aired live on PBS39 on Wednesday, Sept. 9 at 5:30 p.m. The Forum can be viewed any time below.
The Da Vinci Science Center was not able to host the annual Women in Science & Engineering (WISE) Forum at The Center at Holiday Inn Lehigh Valley in March 2020 as planned.
The WISE Forum traditionally includes a public panel discussion featuring a panel of female distinguished STEM professionals from across the country. This year’s Forum was cancelled due to COVID-19, but after exploring options to safely bring this group of accomplished women in STEM together, we were thrilled to partner with PBS39 to broadcast the panel live from PBS 39 studios, directly into the homes of those in the Lehigh Valley area and beyond.
The annual Women in Science & Engineering (WISE) Forum brings together female high school students; faculty and students from area universities and colleges; and accomplished women from the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, math).
This event is part of a broader Da Vinci Science Center initiative to support aspiring young girls and female practicing STEM professionals. The Science Center offers a number of programs and events throughout the year to introduce students to STEM career pathways and to engage female STEM professionals and provide them the opportunities to network and support each other.
