Sabrina Klement, a senior applied mathematics major, attended the Nebraska Conference for Undergraduate Women in Mathematics Jan. 25-27.
This conference focused on how much women could do in a male-dominated field.
Klement learned from both students and professors that presented.
It also gave Klement new ideas on research.
“Seeing examples of possible research topics and how they were structured was beneficial,” Klement said. “I was introduced to a lot of higher-level math concepts that I am excited to continue to explore.”
Klement is mistaken for being a mathematics education student instead of an applied mathematics major with minors in computer science and Spanish.
Though it’s annoying, Klement thinks it’s worth it to stay in mathematics.
“It’s important for women to be in STEM fields because diverse perspectives are crucial to effective problem solving,” Klement said.
