 photo stem_zpsb7e525a7.pngI caught wind of this fantastic event on Facebook and felt like you need to know about it!  It's a free event (registration required) for girls.

According to the website: "Girls Day Out program is designed to promote interest in STEM careers (science, technology, engineering & math). The workshop will allow for personal and in-depth career exploration. The students will learn about STEM careers first hand by touring and visiting a local company."

As a former math teacher and well.....a female, I think this is CRAZY AWESOME!
