EX.I.T.E. - EXploring Interests in Technology and Engineering
The Technology for Girls workshop series invites middle school girls with disabilities the opportunity to roll up their sleeves and to get messy while exploring science, technology, engineering, and math. Girls explore the wonderful world of science through hands-on workshops that take place during the school year. These workshops work to promote the sciences to girls in a fun, non-competitive environment; all skill levels are welcomed.
