Girls-n-Science is all about getting young girls interested in science, technology, engineering and math…or STEM.
It started with 300 girls. Now this free program brings in some 700 to 900 girls with their parents, grandparents and teachers.
The annual program used to be called Chicks In Science. This year the name has changed and so has some parts of the program.
There’s a special morning event called STEM stars. Organizer Laura Gettings-Carlson says it’s just for middle schoolers.
