DIY Girls invites you to celebrate National Engineers Week

featuring keynote speaker


Congressman Tony Cárdenas

Electrical Engineer and US Representative for California's 29th District

 

Nationally, less than 15% of 4th-8th grade girls show an interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). DIY Girls currently serves elemetary school girls in Los Angeles by providing year-long after school programs where girls explore engineering, create with technology and make real products. We aim to have an effect on the girls as they enter adolescence and start to form career interests. 


A call to action for girls in Los Angeles: Join business and technology leaders along with educators to discuss how we can come together to offer STEM educational programs and support systems for girls in Los Angeles.
