About

Girls Get Science

an event for parents and their daughters

Tuesday Feb. 21 2012 -  7pm to 9pm -  Imagination Stage in Bethesda

According to a study from the University of Washington, stereotypes about girls and math start as early as second grade. Researchers report that children express the stereotype that mathematics is for boys, not for girls, before gender differences in math achievement emerge. This event is a way for us to get more girls interested in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).

Sponsors: We are looking for a few good sponsors to support girls and science. Sponsors have the option of buying a one page ad for $100 or a half page ad for $50 in our event brochure.

As a sponsor your company will also get a thank you on both our Girls Get Science and Adventures With Robots Facebook pages. Your sponsorship will reach over 100 families at the event, over 200 Facebook fans, and hundreds more via our mailing list when we announce the event.


The event: At the Girls Get Science event we will have a panel of female engineers and scientists speak with parents while the daughters are doing hands-on workshops in breakout rooms; then we bring them together to meet the panelists. The workshops include Lego robotics, video game programming, crime science, engineering, and electronics.
