MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT)- Girls across Middle Georgia learned about science, technology, engineering and math at “Stemtastic Saturday.”
Girls from third to eighth grade attended the event.
Event organizers hope to provide diversity in the workplace by teaching girls the importance of STEM.
“We talk a lot about the STEM pipeline,” said Sabrina Walthal, Board President of Real Impact. “We talk about having that pipeline be diverse. That means including women and minorities so that we have different voices, different concepts, different ideas that can be brought to the table.”
The group plans to hold a workshop for “STEAM” at Northeast High School in April.
STEAM is STEM program but also includes the arts.
