This event is geared toward girls in grades 6, 7, & 8 who will be exposed to careers in the STEM fields through hands-on activities when they visit BGSU virtually to participate in live and engaging sessions.

The goals for this event are to:
  • Offer a highly engaging and interactive experience for students
  • Expand students' awareness of potential STEM career paths
  • Elevate excitement and confidence in female students for pursuing STEM courses/careers
This year’s keynote speaker will be Mary Kay Carson!
