About STEM Sisters Conference, June 4-7, 2019

My name is Mattie McLellan and I am in the 9th grade at Chaffin Junior High. For my Girl Scout Gold Award I am working with Fort Smith School District to develop a 4 day STEM conference for 40 rising 7th grade girls from across the district to expose and inspire them to the many STEM fields available as careers. We are lining up leading local women from each of these areas to mentor, speak and lead hands on activities with our girls. We are also hoping to include field trips to local STEM companies in order to see STEM in action.  Do you have any STEM women that would be willing to mentor, speak or present (or all three) at our conference which will be held June 4-7, 2019 here in Fort Smith? We would really like for our girls to get to know local women already working in these fields in order to create a female STEM support network in the area. We would love to have them be role models for and inspire our girls.
