Girls in Technology - Sharing our Success (SOS) - POSTPONED
Thursday, April 02, 2020, 4:30 PM - 8:30 PM EDT
Category: Girls in Technology

Due to concerns about Coronavirus/COVID-19 cases in the area, this event has been POSTPONED until further notice.

The Sharing Our Success program is designed for girls in grades six through 12. The goal of the program is to generate awareness and to nurture girls' interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM).

This SOS event offers girls an opportunity to talk STEAM with exhibitors from local organizations, universities and companies. Girls will be able to ask questions of exhibitors such as "What do the STEAM professionals in your organization do on a day-to-day basis?" "What education and background does your organization look for when deciding who to accept or hire?" "How does your organization support girls who are interested in STEAM careers?"

The SOS will also allow girls an opportunity to meet and network with professional women who have turned their love for technology into successful careers in these fields. Students will participate in an interactive panel discussion with distinguished women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. The girls also get an opportunity to win cool prizes and giveaways.

Note: Due to limited capacity and volunteers to manage this free event, we can accommodate up to 10 students registered from the same school, group, community organization or club. Chaperoned groups are encouraged to ensure maximum student participation.


Due to concerns about Coronavirus/COVID-19 cases in the area, this event has been CANCELLED until further notice.


Registrants will be processed in the order they are received, with priority given to girls currently enrolled in a GIT program. A wait list will be created once capacity is reached.

This public program is available to girls in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Our SOS events typically draw 75-125 girls and their parents. The SOS program is free for students and is made possible by STEM for Her. A light dinner will be provided.
