Young Women In Bio partnered with the Institute for Marine and Environmental Technologies (IMET) on November 12, 2015 for an afternoon exploring aquatic treasures. Furthermore, YWIB had the pleasure of registering this event in the first Maryland STEM Festival Week! We thank all our members, non-members, and sponsors who helped us make this a success.
Specifically, we would like to thank our gracious hosts at IMET. They provided us an excellent opportunity to learn about aquaculture, the fishing industry, and effects of farming. Additionally, they shared with us insights about research opportunities and the varied career paths to graduate school, faculty positions, and business. We look forward to visiting their beautiful buildings in the future, and dining with some of their aquatic friends at our favorite local establishments!
