About the Womens Science Forum

The Space Telescope Science Institute has supported the Womens Science Forum for many years. Started by one of the Institute's scientists, the forum has grown in popularity over the years and is now well known by mathematics and science teachers located in the mid-Atlantic region.

Young women from Maryland, the District of Columbia, Virginia, and as far away as California, have attended the Women's Science Forum. While here they have shared their career dreams, asked questions of leading women scientists and engineers, and taken part in hands-on activities to explore opportunities in various career disciplines.
