Our STEM activities and resources are designed to inspire students, so they can discover and pursue their passions in the world’s fastest growing industries.

Emily Bayuk at Bucknell University
Message from our Founder

I first noticed the gender gap in my high school AP Physics class. I was one of three girls in a sea of twenty boys. It was also in this class that my teacher became my mentor and guided me to pursue an electrical engineering (EE) degree. I’m proud to have been part of the 18% of female EEs at Bucknell University. But, I’m on a mission to change this statistic.

I’m using my education to creatively break down topics and help girls build confidence in STEM.

About Emily

Machine Learning & Cyber Security Experience



Emily first became fascinated with cyber security after completing an externship with Morgan Stanley’s cyber security team in 2019. She explored the bank’s approach to defending systems, applications and clients from cyber threats and was exposed to threat intel and WMIM Cyber through the design, engineering and marketing staff. Emily also received an overview of sub-netting and solved related hypothetical problems.


Emily completed an internship and part-time work with Booz Allen Hamilton as a machine learning software developer. She learned how to build and implement neural networks. She was also introduced to computer architecture, Assembly language and C while working through a reverse-engineering and binary exploitation Capture the Flag cyber security challenge.


After graduating from Bucknell University with a B.S. in electrical engineering and a minor in Russian language, Emily will be joining Accenture’s security team as an analyst to help businesses defend against cyber threats.
