Summary
  • Find out what it takes to break into STEM. Meet three inspiring women with successful careers in science, technology, engineering, and math
  • Behind your favorite games, movies, cars, computers, apps, and appliances lies STEM—science, technology, engineering, and math. A background in STEM opens doors to today's dream jobs.

This short film profiles inspiring examples of women who got their start, and found their calling, in STEM. It features Sheeri K. Cabal, database admin at Mozilla and author of the popular OurSQL podcast; Jess Stratton, lynda.com author and the founder of Solace Learning; and Peggy Fisher, professor of computer science at Penn State and leader of several tech-focused after-school programs for disadvantaged youth. Here Sheeri, Jess, and Peggy talk about the key factors to their success (confidence, community, and curiosity), and the ways they're cncouraging more students to enter STEM. Watch and find out if there's a future in these fields for you
