Virtual Lecture Day: Archive
Virtual Lecture Day, Sunday, May, 24, was a day of nine guest speakers who hold faculty positions at various prestigious universities including Boston University, University of Pennsylvania, University of Chicago, and Northwestern University. Each guest speaker gave a forty minute lecture followed by a Q&A session. Over 50 girls from all across the globe attended—see below to check out what they learned and what they thought!
"I loved the diversity and how so many successful individuals from various fields were all brought together. In addition, many of the online workshops I've attended with other organizations have struggled with having internet trolls disrupting the program. So, I also think that an amazing job was done with the registration and with giving everyone the links."
"I enjoyed that the speakers were giving us exposures to different areas in STEM that I didn’t know about! I also enjoyed that we were able to ask the speakers questions and then contact them afterwards if we had more. I got to meet someone who currently works in the field I want to go to, and that was an amazing experience!"
"Overall, I just loved being able to reach out to people from various fields and make connections with other students."
"Thank you so much for organizing these series of lectures, it was great! They were super interesting, and they gave me a sense of reassurance about pursuing a career in STEM."
"The lectures were so informative. I love the opportunities that we were given, and the application of the subject."
