MCPS to Host Discussion on Welcoming More Girls of Color to STEM
MCPS is hosting a panel discussion on Breaking the Code: Creating a Welcoming Environment for Girls of Color in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) on Wednesday, Feb. 28. The event will be held from 6–8 p.m. in the John F. Kennedy High School auditorium. It is free to attend.
Opportunities in STEM-related fields continue to grow rapidly and offer economic prospects often not found in other fields. New discoveries and innovations demand the inclusion of diverse viewpoints and experiences. Yet women, particularly women of color, remain significantly underrepresented in STEM fields. This conversation will focus on ensuring that girls of color are welcomed in science, technology, engineering and math classes and programs.
Kennedy High School is located at 1901 Randolph Road in Silver Spring.
