Review for AAUW, Washington, DC, USA
My AAUW branch and 3 other branches have used our AAUW resources and contacts to put on a highly successful STEMtastics conference for middle school girls in our area. More than 500 girls and their parents attended. We are particularly targeted middle schools with lots of diversity and also those with a large percentage of free lunch students. Our goal was to expose these girls to young women in STEM fields to inspire and encourage them to consider a STEM field themselves. All the workshops (they each attended 3) were hands on. The evaluations were great, and AAUW touched many young lives that day.
