Girl in Tech Conference

June 2, 2017

Closed Session

One day conference hosted by Mini Mogul Academy and The Midwest Tech Project designed for 7th grade girls who attend Alger and Burton Middle in Grand Rapids Public Schools. Seventh grade girls were intentionally chosen to encourage a strong focus on on science and STEM related subjects as students prepare for M-STEP testing in the 8th grade. By hosting young women for a day of hands on and engaging work that is relevant to multiple career paths we hope to not only positively affect test scores, but also the trajectory of their future. Exposing young women to various fields that traditionally not represented in could result in scholarships and high paying careers, and is something that will have a lasting effect on families in our community.
