To mark Women’s History Month, Sandia coordinated three STEM events for girls of all ages, with hundreds of participants.

“Knowing that women are vastly underrepresented in STEM careers, I feel like we have an opportunity at Sandia to expose many girls, all ages, from all different backgrounds to STEM careers at a national lab,” said community relations specialist Kayla Norris.

The first online event — “Building the Future – Women in STEM” last month was aimed at elementary school age girls. More than 80 families from California and New Mexico participated in the interactive event, which was cohosted by Scientific Adventures for Girls, Stanford University and Sandia.
