Seven students attend school each morning at Burnsville High School and then head out to work in the corporate world.

Students create club to encourage girls to pursue STEM careers

Someday they’d like to be scientists, computer programmers, engineers or mathematicians, but now they’re female students at Burnsville High School and they’ve started a new club to encourage and support girls interested in STEM careers.

The Women in STEM club began last spring when senior Emily Reynolds realized the need for a club for girls who are interested in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). She knows that women are under-represented in STEM jobs and she wants to change that dynamic.
