Women in STEM Incorporated is a registered non-profit created and directed by Cassie Roby.
Cassie Roby was raised in Destin, Florida, where she graduated from Niceville High School in 2015. She then attended Florida State University where she obtained her Masters and Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering. In 2020 she moved to Los Angeles, California where she currently works for Northrop Grumman as a Spacecraft Thermal Engineer.
Throughout her studies, internships, and professional work, Cassie noticed a lack a women within the STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) fields. When asked why young women are not interested in STEM they say it's because they do not have mentors or read about STEM women in their science and history texts. That is why Cassie created Women in STEM, a a non-profit designed to connect elementary through high school women to female STEM professionals for the purposes of mentoring and encouragement.
"The world of science needs more women, but from a young age we girls are encouraged to care more about the way we look than the power of our minds."
