Princeton University STEM faculty, researchers, and students discuss their career trajectories and provide advice for students interested in pursuing and navigating STEM careers at this annual event. All Princeton students are welcome, especially first-year students! 

Faculty on the panel usually share about their research and teaching interests, how they got started down the STEM career paths, and a piece of advice to students in STEM. Then the panelists join student participants at discipline-specific tables for more informal conversations over bubble teas and desserts after the panel presentations. The event provided a great venue for students to build professional communities and seek mentorship support at Princeton.

Our panelists in the 2023 event have included Prof. Maria Apostolaki (ECE), Prof. Ruth Fong (COS), Prof. Aimy Wissa (MAE), Prof. Cate Peña (PNI), Prof. Susan VanderKam (Chem), Dr. Penelope Georges (CST-Bioengineering), and Dr. Erin Flowers (CST-Astrophysics).
