2016/11/5

We helped out as operation and guidance staff in the Tabletop Electron Microscope corner at "When I Grow Up", the public event held on November 5th by the Girl Scouts of Northern California in partnership with the NASA Ames Office of Education.
This project is about increasing women in STEM fields, and the target audience is girls, in grades 6th – 12th who are interested in STEM fields. We gave the approximately 500 participants unique opportunity to view the nanoworld.
The workshop allowed the children to network with women who are working in STEM fields. The presenters were encourages to bring a hands-on activity to the workshop to inspire the student’s and passion about pursuing Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math careers.
