k-Space was happy to support the recent Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics, held at the University of Michigan. In addition to financial support, k-Space engineer Brenna Yorimoto spoke with students about career opportunities in metrology.
Brenna remarked that “the undergraduate physics students were eager to learn about professional opportunities in addition to graduate school opportunities. I was happy to talk about the applied physics work we do here at k-Space, and discuss professional opportunities in general for young women in STEM.”
The popular CUWiP program includes talks by prominent female physicists, panel discussions about careers in physics, laboratory tours, student poster sessions, and other opportunities for students and professionals to interact.
k-Space co-founder Roy Clarke, a professor of physics at the University of Michigan and an AAAS Fellow, encouraged k-Space to take an active role in the CUWiP event. Roy received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Mentoring from President Obama in 2010 in part for his work supporting inclusive entrepreneurship.
