The Alliant Energy Pioneering Your Future in STEM is a one-day event open to girls in fifth through eighth grade. Participants have the opportunity to learn about careers that require creative problem solving, encourage forward thinking, make a difference in society, and share the future of our world. Women remain underrepresented in the science and engineering workforce with the greatest disparities occurring in engineering, computer science, and the physical sciences (NSF, Science & Engineering Indicators, 2018).
