Session 3 of the collaborative STEM Outreach sessions was conducted at GGHS, Madarsatul Banat. Student enrollment in this school was more per class, therefore this session was divided into two sections. Women Engineers Pakistan teams from LUMHS and Mehran University of Engineering and Technology (MUET) once again explained the many aspects of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields to young high school girls in this school. An interactive session ensued regarding the young students' career aspirations. This was done for two reasons: 1) To understand the current level for understanding regarding the opportunities available, and 2) to start a discourse about what more can be done in case the primary career objective can not be met. When not many aspiring scientists were discovered within the high school students, WEP Teams presented about the life stories of many Pakistani trailblazing women who achieved their educational or career milestones against all odds. Their audience listened attentively, immersed in the various examples of Pakistani women trailblazers in multiple fields. Ilm-o-Neroon Founder, the very talented Miss Rohaina Malik motivated the female students by explaining all available resources present at their disposal. She shed light on some of the inspirational work that her organization "Ilm-o-Neroon" is doing across Hyderabad city and its outskirts. In their own words, this organization "seeks to start informed conversation on educational issues of Hyderabad and Sindh".
The objective behind these interactive STEM outreach sessions is to a) motivate young girls to pursue an educational trajectory all the way to university, and b) to present relate-able and relevant role models to young Pakistani girls, who can inspire these young citizens to achieve goal 'a'. With the help of such collaborations, WEP is continuing its mission to make the pursuit of "Science for Progress" for every woman and girl in Pakistan.
