GIRLSTART ANNOUNCES LINEUP FOR 9TH ANNUAL GIRLS IN STEMCONFERENCE ON APRIL 12, ALLOWING MORE THAN 500 GIRLS TO ENGAGE WITH WOMEN WORKING IN STEM CAREERS

(AUSTIN) – Imagine you’re a fifth-grade girl who loves math and science, wondering if there’s a way to use those skills when you grow up. Then, imagine over the source of a single day, you can perform DNA isolation on strawberries, create an adhesive similar to what’s used in tape, and build a city out of candy – with the guidance of Austin-area women who get to do these sorts of things for a living.

Thanks to the Girls in STEM conference, a great number of Austin-area girls can get glimpses of what STEM careers to pursue from professionals who do so on a daily basis.
