|Please join us for this wonderful event. It is absolutely inspiring to see scores of girls, laughing and having fun while learning about science and engineering from women.
Girls Get Science is a two-hour event for parents and daughters, grades K-8th. Bring your science lovers AND your science phobics.
From 5:30-6:00, we will have a variety of demos for parents and their daughters to try out. We will also be selling pizza and water in case you have not had time for dinner!
Next, the girls attend two mini-workshops in robotics, video game programming, 3D Design and engineering, while their parents hear our panel of women scientists and engineers discuss how to make science and engineering more fun and less intimidating for girls.
