STEM Trek 2018

STEM Trek 2018

Girls in Technology's third annual end-of-year celebration, STEM Trek, gave 60 middle and high school girls hands-on STEAM opportunity. Celebrating our Edge of Yesterday-inspired theme, "Inventing the Future," participating girls from throughout Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C., engaged in a full afternoon of activities at the University of Maryland School. Girls had the opportunity to learn to code, to test out virtual reality, to make their own 3-D printed designs, get a full professional makeover to dress-up for STEM Success. A special highlight of the day was a conversation and live Q&A with Olympic biathlete and STEM academic, Joanne Reid. All the participants received autographed copies of Edge of Yesterday.
