Supporting women and girls throughout Women’s History Month!
We’ve had a lot going on this month and would like to share it with you:
We participated in a panel of 10 women from Washington, D.C. discussing their careers in STEM at DC International School on March 9, including women who work at NASA, Georgetown University, University of Maryland as well as a software developer and an engineer!
We also held a panel with Audi focused on education and career paths for women in STEM, where we recognized four CHEC Girlsfor their amazing participation in our DRIVE: Like a Girl competition held during the fall 2017 semester during the panel.
STEM for Her exhibited at the MD/DC Odyssey of the Mind 2018 State Tournament at Georgetown Day School on Saturday March 17. Teams competed in multiple problem solving challenges to move to the next level.
For the second year, STEM for Her is providing funding to support of GIRLS’ Spring STEAM Camp during Spring break week, and it has expanded to TWO locations this year! In partnership with GMU Game and Technology Academy, GIRLS provides 40 middle school girls of color with instruction and hands on experience including STEAM projects such as video game design and digital art.
Finally, we didn't want to miss a chance to thank you for your ongoing support! This month, and throughout the year, STEM for Her works to provide opportunities for girls in the D.C. metro area to pursue STEM-related careers. We would not be able to do any of it without YOUR help.
