Women in STEAM
The PTC Women in STEAM club (formerly Women in Technology or WIT) provides opportunities for women to come together, share experiences, and give advice about their fields. Applicants are accepted on academic achievement, attendance, and outside involvement in clubs and organizations. Currently, The Women in STEAM consists of members from CAD, Computer Programming, Surgical Technology, Information Technology, Security and Forensics and is excited for its growth and support from the PTC community.
Women in STEAM promotes innovation and collaboration between programs at PTC and provides a sense of community. The club hopes to attend future conferences that relate to STEAM as well as provide support to our community through volunteering opportunities.
The mission of Women in STEAM is to encourage and support all women who are involved in technical fields such as Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. The club consists of female students who are enrolled in a STEAM related program and have met the application requirements. The organization may also include males who are in support of this initiative.
“The reason I am passionate about this club is because when I was younger, I was not given as much of a voice. I was expected to accept the comments and remarks others made. This club has allowed the opportunity for not just myself, but other women to be given a chance to have their voice heard, to network with each other, and to show that women are active in all fields of study.” – Sidney Trout (Student, Founder of WIT)
