The STEAM Department is hosting STEAM Cafés once a month – a time for students to meet with female leaders in STEM fields and learn about their research or work. STEAM Cafés are a wonderful opportunity to open our students' minds to new careers and introduce students to STEM role models. Also, STEAM Cafés are a great way to invite community members into our building without impacting class schedules or curriculum.
This week's STEAM Cafe will be with Amie Patao. Ms. Patao does aircraft engine performance analysis using a thermodynamic engine cycle computer model. In addition, Ms. Patao is a very active member of the Beacon Hill community and has been recognized several times for her community activism. Her message to our students is "I look like you, I sound like you, and I work in a really cool and interesting and obscure field. So can you."
