SAHS STEM Post is a series of workshops designed for girls in grades 9-12 who are interested in learning more about career opportunities in STEM fields. The girls work directly with professionals to discuss real-world career experiences and engage in a variety of STEM activities. In our Pumpkin Launching session, students worked with Cristy Dougherty, a biochemist with Janssen Pharmaceuticals, to discuss the physics of trebuchets and launch pumpkins using a trebuchet. It was a great competition, the girls had fun and learned how engineering is all about testing a theory and then making adjustments!
