Abby Turner, Executive Director of the Montana Science Center (MSC) and MSU Alum, '06, speaks to the programs and projects offered at the MCS featuring Women in STEM. The Women in STEM Advisory Group and events featured at the Center started in spring of 2018 and continued until the pandemic closed us down for six months. Since then, the staff has worked through various different avenues to introduce the idea of "Everyone looks like a Scientist" to students of all ages. Abby will discuss the different ways women throughout our valley and beyond have volunteered with the MSC to reach unique audiences and what that means for our community. Sparking curiosity in STEM topics is our mission and bringing equity to science & technology is deeply engrained in the Centers' value statement.
