Industry 5X5

Students who attend the Hawaii STEM Conference will have the opportunity to network with STEM industry professionals during STEM 5x5.

MEDB’s Women in Technology Project will be having our 9th Annual Hawaii STEM Conference on April 10 & 11, 2018. We are excited to invite industry professionals to participate in our STEM Career “5×5” session on Tuesday, April 10, 2018!

The “5×5 Session” is a high energy networking session that offers students a unique opportunity to ask you about your career and academic experiences. It’s a platform designed for middle and high school students across the state to engage with you for five minutes of five rounds. You will be joined in with both local and national STEM industry professionals to inspire students.  This 5×5 session is incredibly popular among the students to gain interest in the STEM fields.

Many of the questions commonly asked are: What type of education do you have? What is the coolest project you have worked on? What do you enjoy most about your job? What made you choose your career? Etc.
