“Our biennial STEM Careers Night is a fantastic way for students to both network and gain exposure to exactly how science, technology, engineering, and mathematics professions connect us and unify our world,” said Upper School chemistry teacher Kyle Modes, who organized the event. “Although the Science Department is disappointed that a live event could not occur this year, we are extremely proud of the virtual event we were able to hold.  We would like to thank our many gracious presenters who volunteered their time in order to showcase their expertise in a wide variety of fields and backgrounds. An event like this is a strong reminder of how wonderful and supportive our W+H community is.”
