On Nov. 8, high school juniors Alexia Kaloudis and Anne Catherine Unser graduated from the Women in Technology Program at BAE Systems in Greenlawn. This nine-week program hosts a consortium of students from local high schools, where they engage in problem solving and teamwork. Skills in both hardware and software are cultivated, and the program is an extension of the computer science and technology curriculums at Northport High School. The purpose of this program is to provide female students who excel in math and science with a hands-on opportunity to explore careers in various areas of technology.

“Working with other girls who were also interested in computers was incredible,” said BAE systems graduate Alexia Kaloudis, “and after this program, I can definitely see myself going into a STEM field.”
