Play Like a Girl STEM+ Summit is specially designed for middle school girls eager to participate in hands-on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in a fun and engaging atmosphere.
The day will be packed with inspiring TED-style lightning talks, fireside chats, makerspace workshops, a LUNAFEST screening and hands-on demos, culminating in a STEM+ Challenge where teams of students will work alongside industry mentors and role models to ideate, solve and pitch solutions to real-world problems. Girls will explore a multitude of STEM careers and career pathways selected to pique varied interests, including robotics, computer programming, visual effects, biomedicine and cyber security.
At our event, we will be showing short films by and about women to help young girls celebrate the women behind the camera for LUNAFEST 2020. To celebrate the kickoff to Women's History Month and a day well-spent, the day will end with dessert and a dance party!
