Alumna Hosts STEM Lunch & Learn

RCDS alumna Summer Kitahara '14 recently returned to campus to host a "Lunch & Learn" session for Upper School girls interested in hearing about Summer's path in computer science and her experience as a woman in a traditionally (but increasingly less so!) male dominated field. Forty-five girls attended the session and were captivated by Summer's path from Carnegie Mellon University, where she majored in Computer Science, to Facebook, where she has interned and will start her career this summer. Thank you to Kaori McManus for arranging this meeting as part of her RCDS Institute project on building confidence and participation in the STEM fields so as to close achievement gaps.
