Girl Up’s STEM for Social Good Tour is live This FREE one-day event will provide youth with the opportunity to explore their interests in STEM. You can expect to hear from women in STEM, gain an increased understanding of bridge engineering, and develop a STEM-centered solution to an issue in your community for the chance to obtain a $500 grant to implement your project. Girl Up strives to make our virtual programming insightful, fun, and interactive. We can’t wait to connect with you!
