HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — This year, female students from the Alabama School of Cyber Technology and Engineering will participate in a cyber-based challenge at the school's Oakwood University Campus. 

After the challenge, panelists will talk about career opportunities, what it’s like to work in a STEM field and the importance of women in STEM.
