On Sunday, we welcomed special guest Blair C. Marks to Sci-Tech! Blair is the president of Women of Reform Judaism, an organization that unites Sisterhood and women's groups in order to strengthen the voice of women throughout the Reform Movement.

In addition to her work as an engineer, Blair is active in the Temple Kol Emeth Sisterhood in Marietta, GA and serves on the board of the Georgia Youth Science and Technology Centers, which promotes improving science and technology education for elementary and middle school students.

Blair pointed out the world is changing and some fields where women were previously virtually absent, like medicine, are now dominated by women. Blair feels that women right out of college today have a vastly different experience entering STEM fields than she had. However, the work of engaging women in science and technology is far from over. The campers shared different experiences with Blair.
