Building community one event at a time.
Girls & STEM
Hosted by: Discovery World
Saturday, November 11, 201710:00 am - 5:00 pm
We’re hosting our second annual Girls & STEM day, and you’re invited! Together, our partners and other groups throughout the city will be onsite to spark new interests, make real-life connections, and fight stereotypes and obstacles facing young girls and women in Milwaukee.

Girls & STEM was produced to inspire creativity and curiosity in females through engaging hands-on activities that demonstrate and integrate science, technology, engineering, and math. Our goal is that through demonstrations, conversations, and engaging experiments presented by local companies, schools and organizations, young girls become empowered, cultivate confidence, and develop a deeper understanding that everything is possible in life and in the world.

Preschool to grad school, we encourage everyone to join us on November 11th as Girls & STEM is an all-ages event! At Discovery World, we encourage STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) learning for both young & old. With over 25 groups joining us, the interactive activities provided are ideal for ages 3 and up but engaging for all ages, there are special activities for girls of every generation to explore STEM!

Through our fun and casual environment, visitors will have the opportunity to:

Explore science, technology, engineering, and math through hands-on activities! Meet and talk with female professionals in STEM+ careers! Participate in fun STEM demonstrations with local companies, schools, and organizations displaying interactive booths on our Promenade such as:
