The Wytheville branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) in partnership with Wytheville Community College (WCC) will host the 5th Annual STEM event on March 23, 2019.

This fun, hands-on exploratory workshop is aimed at Wythe County and Bland County middle school girls who are currently in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. The activities will focus on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), while encouraging participants to be creative and consider solutions for real-life problems. 

"We have enjoyed watching the enthusiasm of our registrants. AAUW's mission is to promote educational equality for women and girls,” said Anita Aymer of the AAUW. “This workshop allows them to think about their dream career and reach for the stars."

Students will attend four, one-hour workshops in different STEM disciplines. Sessions include robotics, virtual reality, biomedical engineering, and meteorology.

The workshop will be held on the WCC campus from 8:45 a.m. to 3 p.m. and the registration fee is $5. A free lunch will be provided. To register or for more information about the STEM event please contact Aymer at aaymer@wcc.vccs.edu or aauw.wythe@gmail.com.
