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.
STEAM Cafe on Tuesday with Energy Manager and Principal of sustainability consulting firm Putnam Price, Cynthia Putnam. Cynthia provides advice to owners of large buildings such as schools and offices about ways they can make their buildings more environmentally friendly, energy and resource efficient. Her message for our students is "If you care about protecting the natural environment, my profession will give you opportunities to work with building scientists, engineers, and policy makers to make our buildings work better for the occupants and reduce their impact on the environment."
