Summer STEM Program for Girls!

STEM girls 2016

The South Shore Area Branch of AAUW  partnered with the Weymouth (MA) Public Schools to present Envision the Future Weymouth , a five day science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) program for girls entering grades 6-9.  The program models effective practices and is designed to foster interest in STEM fields.  The program provided opportunities for girls to engage in challenging STEM activities, explore career options with STEM professionals, meet women role models in STEM fields, and connect with other girls with similar interests and aspirations.  The program was held at Weymouth High School July 18-22, 2016.
