GE Girls is sponsored by General Electric and is a program designed to encourage girls to explore the world of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), and STEM-based careers. The program began in 2011 with one program at MIT and has since grown to over nine programs, with more to come. In addition to the in-person programs, GE Girls launched the GE Girls Club in 2016 as a way to keep the conversation going about STEM. Since its inception, GE Girls has reached hundreds of girls who will continue to explore STEM and engage with the program throughout their high school years.

Spring Break Reminders

Hope you all are enjoying (relaxing) on this Spring Break weekend. Here are a few announcements/reminders for the remaining of the session.

  • Remember, there is no class this week for SB and the program will resume next Tuesday, April 10th.
  • There is a make-up class Saturday, April 14th from 9am – 1pm. Breakfast will be provided. It is highly recommended they be there to finish up their projects, but completely understand if you have plans already. I made it 4 hours, just in case they can only come for a couple hours in the beginning or end, that is completely understandable. I wanted to give the girls a chance to make up for our field trip day to the movies last week.
  • Our ceremony (last class) will be held May 1st from 6pm – 8pm at the University of Richmond Downtown. We will celebrate the girls and all they accomplished this session!
    • The ceremony will be a potluck, please sign up here to let everyone know what you will be bringing.
    • The address is 626 E Broad St # 100, Richmond, VA 23219. Click here for directions to the campus.
    • Room TBA
Please let me know if you have any questions. Otherwise, I’ll see you all next Tuesday 🙂
