Girls enjoyed hands-on activities in STEM, including building model volcanoes, understanding the chemistry of slime, and exploring the physics of model cars.
Girls enjoyed working in teams on interactive activities. They fostered creativity, interacted with students from different schools, and learned how to work collaboratively to accomplish tasks.
Girls obtain mentoring and guidance on studying and careers in STEM fields from University of Maryland, College Park undergraduate students. Girls also learned about the college experience.
