For girls

We will have an exciting program of hands-on STEM workshops. Girls attend two “tech savvy” workshops choosing from different workshops led by women working in fields as diverse as epidemiology, developmental biology, electricity, design, and space. Women presenters from many great institutions such as CalTech, Parsons, California Science Center, Natural History Museum, Carnegie Observatories, and Pasadena City College do workshops like Programming Virtual Reality, Creative Chemistry, Capturing and Studying the Sun, Engineering Catapults, Mutant Fish and many more. A workshop on “soft-skill” topics such as financial literacy, internet safety, public speaking, self esteem and more follows the hands-on STEM workshops.

Special sessions for parents, guardians or teachers show them how to help girls on the path to college and a career. Adult sessions are available in English and Spanish.

Promote the conference at your school, organization or church, or share with friends. Here are the flyers.
