Girls in STEM

If we want to inspire more girls to enter into STEM fields, we need to put the tools in their hands, and that is exactly what these local panelists are doing. Join an interactive conversation focusing on the importance of the inclusion of girls in STEM education.

Discussion will highlight local organizations’ efforts to engage our community in STEM, their internal programming, outreach efforts, and how the community can do more. Panelists will discuss what opportunities local corporations and organizations are providing girls in our community and why these opportunities are important to make available.
