Girl Power STEM ProfessionalsAre you a woman in a STEM field that wants to help young girls see their potential in joining a STEM field? If you have answered yes, then you're in the right place.
If you work in a Science, Technology, Engineering or Math (STEM) field or currently studying to become a STEM professional, we want to hear from you. We are currently looking for female role models to be a part of Girl Power.
What is Girl Power?Since 2014, we have hosted Girl Power which is an annual STEM career day for girls. This program gives young women in our community the opportunity to meet and learn from women in the STEM fields. This event offers a special EXTREME demonstration from Imagination Station, special activities prepared by STEM professionals and the opportunity to explore the science center.
