Next Thursday my work is paying for me to go down to Denver and volunteer at the third-annual Girls Exploring Science, Engineering, & Technology event.
I am REALLY stoked about this.
There will be about 800 7th and 8th grade girls all there to hear about different options for working in the science and technology fields.
I feel like the main reason there are so few girls in engineering is because a lot of them aren't exposed to it at all until they are in college. By then they think it is "too hard" for them to do.
It really isn't! And I love sharing that with younger generations.
