Speaker: Carla Duhaney - Chief Operating Officer
Topic: Girls and STEM at the South Florida Science Center
Lets discuss the importance of encouraging young women to enter the Engineering, Mathematics, and Science fields, to stand out, and be proud!
Girls have a bright future in Science and GEMS Club will continue to help them shine! It offers the perfect opportunity for young girls in grades 3 - 8 to learn and grow as they discover the exciting world of math, science, engineering and technology. Join our Virtual Sessions with a live educator as we explore different STEM principles and hands-on activities you can do at home.
