Soar Saturdays

STEM Program for girls.  Monthly workshops designed to encourage girls to explore the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.  Speakers will discuss their area of expertise to advance girls' knowledge of, and interest in, STEM careers.  Periodic field trips, that focus on exposing girls to real-world applications of these content areas, will be scheduled throughout the school year.

The program is open to girls in third and fourth grades and will be held at Glenside Elementary School in Glenside, PA.  Contact Angela Schell at aschell.caaa@gmail.com for more information.
