Johns Hopkins APL to Host “Girl Power” STEM Event on March 6
APL hosted the sixth annual "Girl Power" event on March 17, 2013, and attracted more than 1,100 middle and high school girls and their family members to the Kossiakoff Center for a free introduction to STEM careers. APL staff and other community volunteers in STEM-related fields led the girls through hands-on activities and talked with them about their careers in aerospace, computer science, electrical engineering, information technology, mechanical engineering, space science, and more.
On Sunday, March 11, 2012, APL hosted a free introduction to STEM careers for middle and high school girls. "Girl Power: Reach for the Sky" is a partnership between APL, the Women's Giving Circle of Howard County, and the Maryland Space Business Roundtable. This was the fourth annual Girl Power event, and nearly 1,000 participants attended.
Sparking students' interests in STEM at an early age 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.
