Expanding Your Horizons – March 1

The first Saturday in March brought over 300 girls ages 11-14 for a day of hands on science and engineering.  Co-chairs Liz Ferguson and Dr. Sue Lowery led a very successful event.   I am involved in the organization of this annually and provided support for the parallel program we hold for parents that helps them become aware of the opportunities for their daughters and how to best support them into college.  While the event is held at the University of San Diego, it’s truly a county-wide activity supported by a broad cross-section of STEM.  I was pleased to meet up with my SHPE friends to make (secret for now) plans.
