Female students encouraged to consider STEM career paths

• By Martha Nangombe

The Debmarine-Namdeb Foundation, in collaboration with WomEng, held a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Manufacturing) workshop for 250 girls in Gobabis, Omaheke region, as part of a three-year commitment to engage 10,000 girls and women in STEM by 2030.

WomEng, in collaboration with the De Beers Group and Debmarine-Namdeb Foundation, presented an interesting half-day session in Gobabis on August 30.

The dynamic and educational event gave 250+ high school girls the opportunity to learn about future STEM jobs and interact with women engineers already in the profession and working for Debmarine Namibia.

Professional female engineers from Debmarine attended the event, as did young female engineers from the Southern Africa Fellowship, a WomEng programme supported by De Beers Group that focuses on teaching university technology students in Namibia, Botswana, and South Africa.
