Penn State Brandywine (Media, PA) is currently seeking female presenters for their 2018 STEM Options Program, an opportunity for middle and high school girls to come to campus and interact with professionals in STEM fields. The program seeks to help young women cultivate an interest in STEM and to feel encouraged to pursue the sciences to close the gender gap in STEM careers. See the STEM Options website and this press release: http://brandywine.psu.edu/story/4143/2016/05/20/seventh-grade-girls-explore-stem-careers-penn-state-brandywine to learn more.
Each year Longwood Gardens organizes a Community Read program with area partner organizations to celebrate exceptional books around a theme. The Community Read sparks about 120 events—book talks, tours, workshops, hikes, and more–in the surrounding counties each year. The theme this spring is Women in Science and the books are Lab Girl by Hope Jahren (adults), Women in Science by Rachel Ignotofsky (middle school), and The Tree Lady by H. Joseph Hopkins (k-3).
