Hernandez inspires future engineers

Emily Hernandez, EE’16, a Ph.D. student in electrical and electronics engineering at Stanford University, discussed her efforts to encourage young people to pursue an education in a field related to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) in the July 17 issue of The Institute, an online publication of IEEE.


Hernandez mentors pre-university students in California who are interested in a STEM field. She has worked in youth outreach since she was a high school student, when she first mentored young girls at a camp for engineering. That initial spark encouraged her to be creative and unafraid of failure — lessons she tries to instill in all her students.
