The festival is a family-friendly event featuring hands-on science activities and workshops to encourage girls ages 6 to 18 to participate in STEM by exploring, asking questions and solving problems at festival activity booths.
Research suggests that girls are less likely to pursue a career in math, science and technology. Research also demonstrates that parents, teachers and other adults typically do not expect girls to perform as well as boys in science, math and related subjects, regardless of their true potential or demonstrated ability. However, Girls Inc. knows that girls can be the next astronaut, mathematician, medical researcher, ground breaking petroleum engineer and more than we can imagine!
