The JHU Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) hosted Girl Power! 2018, a STEM expo for middle and high school girls yesterday, March 11, with support from the Maryland Space Business Roundtable and the WGC.
The event featured hands-on activities, cool demonstrations, and take-home materials for girls to encourage an interest in STEM careers. Over 600 girls had the opportunity to talk to professional women in STEM careers such as aerospace, computer science, electrical engineering, geology, information technology, and space mission engineering.
“Girl Power inspires girls to see what is possible in STEM careers and to start to envision a STEM future for themselves.”
– Colleen D’Agrosa, WGC Executive Committee
WGC is proud to have funded this amazing program for the 12th year.
“We are proud to have supported this wonderful program for years! It falls right inline with the WGC’s vision, mission and core values focusing on women and girls. If you haven’t had a chance to go, I hope you will next year!” – Dee Athey, WGC Grants Committee Chair
