Thirty middle school girls will be discovering just how fun and interesting it can be to utilize science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) through hands-on projects and mentoring with women currently in STEM careers.

The GE Girls at MSOE program inspires middle school girls to consider STEM careers through engaging and challenging hands-on experiences using STEM skills in collaboration with women role models currently working in related industries.

The program is a week-long experience (June 22-26, 2015) that features dynamic curriculum around physics, math, chemistry, and electronics, in addition to projects developed specifically around the expertise at GE Healthcare, GE Power & Water and MSOE.
