WIT Rites of Passage Daughters Learn About Drones in STEM
On July 24, 2021, Terra McKee, Doctoral Student, Applied Science and Technology at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, facilitated an informative workshop on “Technology in STEM: Geographical Information Science and Drones” for the WIT Rites of Passage Circle.
“The Rites of Passage Daughters are fortunate to learn, at such a young age, about various STEM career options available to them in both the corporate sector and federal government,” said Women in Training, Inc. Board Member Stephanie Aldridge McCorvey, DPT. “Not only is the STEM field financially lucrative, but the work is also rewarding because you can help develop our collective vision for the future.”
Ms. McKee engaged the Rites of Passage Daughters in interactive GeoInquiry activities and provided resources for exploration of the Earth, continents and oceans and rivers.
“I want to be a resource for the young leaders in the Rites of Passage Circle,” McKee said. “This material I am sharing with you comes directly from my doctoral dissertation; however, I am confident you can understand it. At the end of the day, I am an educator and want to help you develop if you want a career in a STEM field.”
