Brain Games

In the workshops, small groups of students are engaged in hands-on activities related to math, science, engineering or technology careers. Workshops are led by women professionals. Workshop leaders will also share their careers, their preparation for them, some of their work experiences and a little bit about their personal lives (family, pets, hobbies and outside interests). Workshop leaders become role models for the girls.

Attendees are able to choose from a wide variety of fun workshops and are assigned to two.  All workshops are conducted in English.
