Chelsea Clinton and Kari Byron Are Hosting a Panel Discussion Today About STEM-Based Education for Young Women

What about STEME? Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, and Exploding Stuff?

Recently, it seems there’s a big push for STEM-based education for school-aged girls and young women. (Yay!) Google launched a coding initiative for girls, Verizon gut-punched our feels with this commercial, and today, Mythbuster Kari Byron and former-First Daughter Chelsea Clinton are live streaming a panel on the topic.

The panel, titled From STEM to Success: A No Ceilings Conversation, will start at 11:15AM ET and, according to a blog post on the Clinton Foundation site, will be a “dialogue designed to hear directly from girls, women, men and boys about how to support and expand opportunities for women and girls globally.”

Besides Clinton and Byron, the panel will also include Denver Public School students and women in STEM-related careers.

If you have a question for you panel you can ask through bing.com/noceilings.
