Girls Rock Science this weekend in Pittsburgh

As part of our ongoing efforts to strengthen and diversify one of our most important pipelines, we are once again sponsoring the Williams Girls Rock Science exhibit September 23 and 24 at the Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh.

For Williams, being great at science, math, engineering and technology – or STEM – is critical to our success.  That’s because our ability to run safe, environmentally responsible and reliable natural gas pipelines – something we’ve been doing for more than 100 years – is only as good as the people who design, build and operate them. And that’s why we’re always working to highlight for young students – and especially females – the limitless opportunities in STEM studies and career fields.

The Williams Girls Rock Science exhibit helps us strengthen our talent pipeline by providing hands-on STEM activities to get girls of all ages excited about science and technology, and get them thinking about the many positive contributions they can make to companies like ours in the future.

Activities include:

  • Climb inside and see how self-driving cars actually work
  • A construction zone to explore careers while participating on hands-on projects
  • A coding and robotics area
  • Virtually build your own roller coaster

This event is just a small part of commitment to Pennsylvania. With a regional headquarters in Pittsburgh and field offices in Fayette, Susquehanna and Bradford counties, our Pennsylvania operations employ more than 600 people.

We hope you come out to the Carnegie Science Center and learn more about STEM possibilities at this year’s event. More information is available here.
