Monday, 28 October 2013 03:24

Last week, Miss America 2014 Nina Davuluri visited South Bend, Indiana, to attend an event sponsored by the P-H-M Education Foundation promoting the awareness of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education in the classroom. Nina visited Penn High School in Mishawaka, Indiana, and toured a robotics exhibit designed and constructed by the young women who attended the event. After touring the robotics exhibit, Nina attended a luncheon and spoke of the importance of the STEM platform and following your dreams.


Nina spent the afternoon of October 21 touring Whirlpool Corporation Headquarters, learning about the company's brands and how products are developed and tested. She also had the pleasure of meeting with Whirlpool executives and the participants in Whirlpool's WERLD Program—mechanical, electrical, materials science, and chemical engineering undergraduate and graduate students who seek to launch their career with a global industry leader. Following her tour, Nina visited Saint Joseph Regional Medical Hospital, where she spoke to girls ages seven to fourteen on the importance of believing in yourself and being accepting of your own qualities. She also discussed the importance of education and STEM.
