PQ Systems Employee Named as STEM Exemplar

Middle-school students learned to create mobile applications, websites, and more

Published: Thursday, September 3, 2015 - 09:38

(PQ Systems: Dayton, OH) -- The Ohio Academy of Science has named Hanen Alkhafaji, a PQ Systems software development team member, as one of 58 Ohio’s “Believe in Ohio” STEM Exemplars. She was one of only two Daytonians named.

Exemplars are named for their science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) workforce perspective. They serve as role models for students to encourage them to pursue STEM careers and become entrepreneurs and innovators. Alkhafaji worked with middle-school students enrolled in Chaminade-Julienne High School’s STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Medicine) summer camp, introducing them to statistical concepts in an interactive analytical activity. A team of five PQ Systems collegiate interns, led by Alkhafaji, taught the students how to create mobile applications, introducing them to programming languages and design, as well as website development.

Honorees are graduates of Ohio high schools, have attended higher education in Ohio or elsewhere, and are gainfully employed or retired in a STEM field in Ohio. Alkhafaji is an alumna of Chaminade-Julienne High School and Wright State University.
