An inspiring monthly program dedicated for girls and nonbinary students in 5th-8th grade. The program includes an inspiring one-day conference for 100-150 girls usually on a Saturday, augmented by monthly in-depth workshops and camps led by professional women in STEM. The girls experience new STEM hands-on activities in small groups and engage in a friendly, safe environment to make long-lasting friendships.
Due to our funding restrictions, priority is given to students in Northern New Mexico in the following counties: Santa Fe, Taos, San Miguel, Mora, Sandoval, Rio Arriba, and Los Alamos.
