Did you know that currently only about 15% of engineers are women? OR that only 25% of computer scientists are women? The girls of FMES are determined to change that statistic! If you have a girl that loves all things STEAM, sign her up for our Fall 2018 Girl Powered workshop! This event will be held November 29th from 2:30-4:30 in the FMES gym/cafeteria. See the attached flyer for more info and sign your Girl Powered girl up using the form link. All FMES girls in K-5 are invited. Cost for this workshop is $25 to cover materials and snacks. Email Michelle Walker at if you have questions or would like to volunteer to help. (Dads and grandfathers are always invited to come help- we want your girls to know the male role models in their lives support their STEAM adventures!)
