Pioneering Your Future in STEM is a collaboration of women faculty, staff, and students from UW-Platteville's Colleges of BILSA and EMS.
Learn about the exciting career opportunities that are available for women interested in STEM. The hands-on, interactive career sessions will give you some ideas for exploring careers that involve problem solving and experimentation, putting things together and taking them apart, and using what you learn in your studies of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Plus, it is lots of fun!
