Monthly, mentors from PEER and WISE travel to McCant’s and Lakeside middle schools to teach girls about STEM field careers. As part of a program called “It’s a Girl Thing,” the department hopes we both instill a love and inspire girls to pursue STEM careers. This semester our mentors taught the girls about Civil Engineering and Computer Science/Engineering. Later, the PEER/WISE department will host a field trip for those in the program at Clemson University to further show what they can expect from these careers. In April, we will hold a banquet for the participants to celebrate the future of women in STEM.
