Discovering the Scientist Within
Discovering the Scientist Within is a free half-day workshop designed to encourage young women to pursue science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers.
We nurture girls’ interest in the sciences by providing a program of hands-on activities paired with positive adult women STEM role models. The goal of the workshop is to introduce girls to STEM career fields in which women are traditionally under-represented; another is to change the stereotypical perception that scientists are male and that science is ‘difficult’.
Discovering the Scientist Within for 2016 was a great success! Thank you very much to our sponsors:
