Planning efforts are underway for our 8th annual STEM-ING event to be held Saturday, 25 April 2020 on the St. Mary’s College of Maryland campus in St. Mary’s, MD! This one-day STEM-ING event is designed for middle school girls in the tri-county region to gain exposure to the STEM fields and careers. Throughout the day, the young ladies will hear from positive role models in the STEM industry and academia and will have an opportunity to choose from over a dozen fun, interactive, and challenging STEM related workshops. Our workshops are focused on introducing the girls to STEM concepts in hands-on, engaging, and practical ways.
