‘Girls Go STEM’ event promotes education

April 30, 2018

More than 100 middle school girls will attend the annual “Girls Go STEM” event on May 15 on the SUNY Adirondack campus in Queensbury.

The program, organized by the Adirondack Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) and SUNY Adirondack's Office of Continuing Education, focuses on science, technology, engineering and math education.

Hands-on workshops in a variety of STEM-related disciplines will give girls who might not otherwise have the opportunity to attend academic enrichment opportunities a day to learn, explore and meet accomplished women in a collegiate setting.

Female academics and professionals from SUNY Adirondack, Arrow Financial Corporation, Hudson Falls School District and JMZ Architects and Planners will present workshops to students. JMZ President Tenée Rehm Casaccio will deliver the keynote address.
