RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - About 650 middle and high school female students will be gathering at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology to learn about careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

The students on Tuesday will attend the school’s annual Women in Science Conference. The students attending the event are currently enrolled at schools in the Black Hills and Wyoming, including home schools.

The School of Mines says a wide variety of STEM careers will be demonstrated by professional women leading interactive exhibits and discussions. Engineers, physicians, dentists and science educators will be among the many speakers.

The keynote address will be given by Emily Graslie, a Rapid City native and current chief curiosity correspondent at The Field Museum in Chicago. Graslie is known for her YouTube channel “The Brain Scoop.”
