Receiving the WICT scholarship gave me the opportunity to attend Tech It Out on June 6th at Villanova University. This year’s TIO event was on the topic of the Internet of Things and the positive impact IoT can have on our lives. There was also a focus on women in STEM and the importance of encouraging and empowering young girls who are interested in pursuing a career in STEM. The speakers were inspiring, and I learned a lot about how IoT can provide peace of mind through the various uses of connected devices. The event allowed for plenty of networking opportunities and it was great to reconnect with familiar faces and meet many other women in various fields in the industry. I am extremely interested in IoT and am grateful that I was able to attend the event as a scholarship recipient.
