The state is home to so many driven and talented women who are flourishing in STEM fields, organizers said in a news release. The public is invited to attend and spotlight “these amazing women while raising funds to support the next generation of women in STEM,” they said.
“Our girls absolutely love our STEM events and programs. They quickly fill up, so we are looking for ways to expand and diversify the content and locations of our programs,” Molly Garza, development director at Girl Scouts of New Mexico Trails, said in a statement.
“We’d love to be able to spend more time with girls in our rural areas of New Mexico. Support for STEM initiatives is critical to our success,” she said.
The keynote speaker is Los Alamos National Laboratory scientist Dr. Jennifer Harris.
The proceeds will support GSNMT and their STEM initiatives.
