S.T.E.A.M. EXPO for Girls Ages 8-18
March 23 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
SAVE THE DATE for the CSRA’s LARGEST S.T.E.A.M. Event for Girls Ages 8 -18 on Saturday, March 23, 2019 from 10AM til 1PM.
Our goal is to provide GIRLS (ages 8-18) with an opportunity to learn about the various opportunities in S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Mathematics) first hand from those who work in these professions.
Quick Facts: It is estimated that ‘GIRLS’ who struggle in Math and Science will become ‘Women’ who will cut themselves off from 75 percent of the STEM jobs that will make up the job market in the years to come. As U.S. News reported in 2013, 71 percent of the new jobs being added will be “computer related in every field.” And today, the fact remains that in STEM, we do not have enough qualified talent to fill these opportunities. In the U.S., there are 2.5 million unfilled STEM jobs.
This event will include:
- STEM activities
- Demonstrations for the Girls
- A STEAMGirl Panel discussion
- A Living STEMseum
Interested in Volunteer Opportunities or For More information, please contact Ebony Brown Hicks at firstname.lastname@example.org
Vendor Proceeds from the event will further STEAM Education for youth and Seniors throughout our community.
