Fourteen Booz Allen Hamilton women were honored as Technology Rising Stars and All-Stars at the 2017 Women of Color in STEM Conference, held in October in Detroit, MI. These women join nearly 250 of their Booz Allen colleagues who have been recognized with Women of Color in STEM awards since 2004.
Imagining your own career in STEM? We asked a few of the Booz Allen leaders honored at this year’s award ceremony to tell us a little bit about how they got where they are.
Hopefully by now, you’ve heard all about our latest women in STEM-themed series, A Balanced Equation! But what you might not know is that behind the scenes, an awesome bunch of Roadtrip Nation roadies—Mimi, Jen, Kelsey, and Ellen—have been visiting schools, Boys and Girls Clubs, and STEM-focused organizations across the country, screening clips from the series for over 2,000 students and young adults.

Last week, 150 fourth graders at North Intermediate Middle School experienced a unique way to learn about science when the Curiosity Cube visited their school. The Curiosity Cube is a mobile technology and science lab sponsored by Millipore Sigma, a global life science company with offices in the local area. Millipore Sigma uses the lab in an effort to spark student interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
Rebecca Dowd, Millipore Sigma Curiosity Cube Coordinator, directed the day’s events along with other volunteers from her company.
Bancroft Elementary fifth graders were smiling, giggling, and asking questions on Thursday as they learned about DNA, 3-D printing, and brain cells.
The students had the opportunity to explore the Curiosity Cube, a mobile science lab developed by MilliporeSigma, an international science company. The Curiosity Cube began travelling around the country in March, and will end it's 2017 tour in late November.
There are plenty of science, technology, engineering, and math, or STEM fields out there and Millipore Sigma, a life-sciences company, wants to share some of the field’s newest technologies with students to generate interest.
