     A group of Melbourne High School students recently visited Ozarka College to attend a STEM conference for young women who are interested in math and science careers. STEM, which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, is an education coalition developed in response to a national shortage of women working in STEM careers. Halle Cooper, a sophomore at MHS, enjoyed the event. “The STEM conference exposed us to several careers that are typically dominated by males. We learned about the field of pharmacy, what it takes to be a wildlife officer, and the many other career opportunities available. I enjoyed learning something new, and I would love to go again!” Math teacher Meghan Warner and 10 students attended the conference. They were Madison Barnett, Ashtyn Bell, Halle Cooper, Joni Fleming, Skylar Franks, Autumn Kyral, Josie Love, Nikki Jo McSpadden, Jasmine Willhite, and Tabatha Wooten. Junior Autumn Kyral was also excited about the event. “The STEM Conference was an excellent learning opportunity that really boosted my confidence in women having successful careers in the math and science fields.”
