What is SCSW
Each year, WIST works to host the Science Careers in Search of Women (SCSW) conference.

Science Careers in Search of Women (SCSW) offers female high school students an extraordinary opportunity to explore STEM professions and areas of interest through interaction with Argonne’s world-class scientists and engineers. The program strives to inspire young women to pursue careers in science by bringing them into the laboratory for a day of lectures, tours, career booth exhibits, and mentoring.
