Pathway to STEM for girls
Submitted By Letha Saldanha
The American Association of University Women (AAUW) Fremont has been serving the Tri-City community with Science, Technology, Education and Mathematics (STEM) education programs for girls as part of our mission to bridge gender inequities.
For the past 19 years, we have hosted a Mother/Daughter STEM Discovery Day biannually. The goal of this popular event is to invoke and sustain an interest in STEM for girls in third through sixth grades. We will host our 38th event on Saturday Feb 24.
So, what happens after sixth grade? How do we continue to build on this STEM pipeline for girls thorough middle school, high school and onward to college so that there is a continuous pipeline of girls entering the workforce and bridging the continuing inequity in STEM/tech Þelds? Locally, our Tri-City parents have been requesting a continuation of our pipeline for girls beyond sixth grade.
AAUW Fremont Branch is pleased to announce, ÒPathway to STEM,Ó an interactive panel discussion for girls in sixth, seventh and eighth grades and their parents. Panelists from the tech industry and current college students pursuing STEM will discuss how to continue to stay engaged in STEM as girls move through middle and high school.
More program details and registration information are available by visiting the AAUW Fremont webpage at https://fremont-ca.aauw.net/stem-education/.
We hope to see you and your daughters there.
