Women are making a difference, changing the world, and transforming the future with science, technology, engineering, and math. APL hosts Girl Power, a STEM expo for elementary and middle school students, with support from the Maryland Space Business Roundtable. The annual event features hands-on activities, cool demonstrations, and take-home material for the students to encourage an interest in STEM careers. Visitors 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. Girl Power is free, and no registration is required.
Activities they can expect this year include – AR/VR, robots, Infrared technology, space exploration, etc. We are partnering again this year with the Women in Technology of Howard County, who are providing 7 technology-based hands-on workshops!
