Middle school girls explore STEM at expo

PROVIDENCE – Middle school girls learned about opportunities in science, technology, engineering and math fields at Tech Collective’s sixth annual STEM in the Middle Girls’ Career Expo.

Held Nov. 4 at the Rhode Island STEM Center at Rhode Island College, 125 middle school students and 10 educators from Sophia Academy, Woonsocket Middle School, Paul Cuffee Middle School and Central Falls’ Calcutt Middle School participated.

“The middle school years represent a crucial time of exploration and self-discovery for girls,” Carol Giuriceo, director of the Rhode Island STEM Center at Rhode Island College, said in a statement. “STEM in the Middle exposes them to new experiences in a safe and supportive environment. Hopefully, when the girls return to their schools, they will have a more comprehensive understanding of and connection to STEM and STEAM.”
