I am so fortunate to live in a state that has many many opportunities for girls to get into the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) programs. Most of the universities around here offer summer camps or weekly intensives for young girls in science. My favorite is at our local Science Museum. They hold a yearly Girls in Science day with fun hands on activities, education and fun things for girls to get them excited about science. The event is co-sponsored by one of our local TV stations and gets lots of media play to drive participation; and it looks so cool. If I have a girl, I am definitely going to introduce her to Science by attending this event.
