Supporting West Virginia’s Future in STEM Innovation
We are organizing different initiatives to support females in male dominated STEM fields ranging from middle school robotics club (GIRLS), female only STEM camp (Academy) to statewide organization to provide mentoring to female from K12, university to industry (EMPOWERS).
