NASA Girls in STEM 2021

*Advanced registration is required. Event is open to Ohio residents ONLY.

The Office of STEM Engagement (OSTEM) has a strong interest in strengthening relationships with organizations that support students pursuing science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers.  Girls in STEM is designed to inspire middle school student interest in STEM fields. The event features women working in STEM fields at NASA Glenn, engaging STEM activities, and tours of NASA Glenn’s facilities.

Due to current health restrictions, Girls in STEM 2021 is planned to be a virtual event. This event will include a virtual tour of a NASA Glenn facility, an online presentation from a female engineer, and a STEM activity that participants will do live during the event. Due to software limitations, the event will be limited to the first 80 registrations received.
