Founded in 1851, SEM is an extraordinary day and boarding school for girls from across Western New York, the United States, and the world. With its understanding of traditional and creative approaches to education in the 21st century, SEM inspires graduates to emerge from their high school experience as leaders, proud to shape society rather than be controlled or defined by it. They live and lead with energy, confidence, honor, and courage.
SEM computer science students recently participated in an exclusive tour and panel at the M&T Tech Hub located in Seneca One Tower. This Hub was created to draw technological talent to Buffalo and situate our city as a place for innovation and opportunity in computing. Its open concept design encourages collaboration between colleagues and revolutionizes the workplace.
Our students met with a panel of women in STEM at M&T, who shared their journeys in the field and advised the students on internships and beyond. We gained valuable encouragement and insights on the importance of diversity in STEM. The students were able to enjoy some of the amenities including the game room, and stunning views of downtown Buffalo.
SEM’s exclusive four-year computer science curriculum provided our students with the background and knowledge to ask informed questions to our panelists and consider internships with the company in the future.
