STEM Outreach and APL
Sparking students' interests in STEM has been a part of APL's mission for decades. At APL, staff members on their own time teach, mentor, judge science fairs, and serve as role models for students who want careers in science and technology. The first speaker is APL Director Ralph Semmel.
The Girl Power STEM expo, hosted by APL, features hands-on activities, cool demonstrations, and take-home material for middle school and high school girls to encourage interest in STEM careers. Girls have the opportunity to talk to professional women in STEM careers such as aerospace, computer science, electrical engineering, geology, information technology, and space mission engineering.
