What latinitas think about women being in STEM careers

 During the STEM camps we address the type of careers that are out there that are mostly dominated by males and that women are not seen working in those fields that much. Our girls got a lesson on what STEM means which is science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The girls were then asked to write what they thought of women working in  these careers and to give an example of a women working in these careers.
