The economic expansion in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) will continue to grow in the future. Across the board in these fields, women are underrepresented.

Change that! Register your 4th through 8th grade girl for these free workshops that introduces them to the fascinating world of engineering and opportunity.

Each girl must be accompanied by an adult 18 years or older.  Each girl receives a free backpack and lunch for participating.  Adults will be able to purchase meals at one of many locations available in the Havener Center.
