Educators in our area are working hard to promote careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math for young girls.

Also known as "STEM" careers, these professions are mostly dominated by men so Michiana Girl Scouts, Fort Wayne Community Schools, and IPFW have partnered for a STEM conference.

The conference was held at IPFW and featured several different activities.  Organizers say the main goal is to get young girls excited about STEM courses.

Hundreds of young girls and their parents or mentors showed up and girls from Kindergarten through fifth grade were invited to attend.
