There is a massive gender imbalance that persists in STEM-related fields, and it's important that we give girls a chance to learn and thrive in a supporting environment. The Girls in STEM program series @ the Kunkel Creation Station hopes to inspire girls to development and maintain an interest in STEM-related topics and future career fields.
