STEM Girl Power event at APL Sunday

GirlsSTEMHelp turn your daughter onto science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) at “Girl Power” a free event at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory this weekend.

The “Girl Power” introductory event is for middle and high school girls and will focus on careers in science, technology, engineering and math. It is scheduled for Sunday, March 9, from 2–5 p.m. on APL’s Laurel campus.

This year, the event will feature 30-minute workshops on cyber situational awareness and women in aerospace. Girls will have the opportunity to speak to representatives from local companies and colleges about STEM careers and majors. Attendees can also try several hands-on activities including building their own hovercraft and learning about material, mechanical and structural engineering from APL’s Society of Women Engineers. A workshop on applying to college and a science show will also be offered.

“Girl Power” is a collaborative, annual effort between APL, the Women’s Giving Circle of Howard County and the Maryland Space Business Roundtable. More than 750 girls attended last year’s program.

“Girl Power is a great way for young women to learn more about careers in science, technology, engineering and math,” says Dwight Carr, APL’s STEM program manager. “Helping our nation’s youth embrace technical careers will strengthen our national security and promote innovation.”

Girl Power will be held in APL’s Kossiakoff Center, 11100 Johns Hopkins Road. In the event of bad weather or for additional information, call 443-778-STEM (7836). No registration is required.
