JA Girls Dream Fair
2/13/18 9:00 am CST
Spectrum Health Hospital (Butterworth)
100 Michigan St NE
Grand Rapids, MI
The JA Girls Dream Fair will inspire 300 eighth grade girls in the greater Grand Rapids area (priority given to those who qualify for free or reduced lunch and may be first generation college graduates). In a one day format, JA will introduce these girls to female mentors who work in STEM-related fields and show them exciting future possibilities. As research suggests, this is crucial in increasing girls' pursuit of STEM careers. Guided by the JA It's My Future curriculum, girls will investigate, ask questions, and be inspired to consider STEM-based majors and careers in their futures.
