Visitors from the Department of State's International Leadership Program come to SEA!

On Thursday, February 22nd, SEA had some pretty important International Visitors stop in.  Eight female engineers and scientists traveling the US with the Department of State's International Leadership Program, stopped in at SEA to gain understanding of educational institutes that champion the interest of women in STEM.  Women in attendance were from the Czech Republic, Libya, Malaysia, New Zealand, Russia, Sir Lanka, United Kingdom and Uzbekistan.  Their professions ranged from R&D Engineers to Software Engineers, Atomic Scientist, Sociologist and Economist.  The women met with SEA staff and students and were very impressed with student autonomy, engagement, levels of questioning and collaboration witnessed.  We were fortunate to have such visitors to confirm what we already know - great things are happening at SEA!
