Pursuing a degree and an occupation in STEM career fields can open countless doors for a lifetime. At the Women in Science Conference, the goal is to inspire the next generation of female scientists, engineers, doctors, and more. Young women will have the opportunity to hear from women in professional STEM fields right here in Okaloosa County, as they enlighten our audience about their careers and deliver advice.
