Adventures with Robots' Girls Get Science

For this event, we bring together a panel of leading women scientists/ engineers with parents and their daughters. Past speakers have included several scientists from NASA. While the daughters grades 2-5 do hands-on activities including robotics and programming, their parents attend our panels discussion about STEM education and careers. After that, parents and their daughters have an hour to meet with the panelists to talk to them about their work and careers. Parents LOVE this event and several have reported that it has given their daughters newfound interest in STEM.
