This past Saturday, my girls had the opportunity to participate in a STEM focused workshop with mentors representing varying areas of sports, locally. Play Like a Girl is a non-profit that aims to blend STEM with Sports for young girls.
With me being the newly found cheer-mom and age old “techie” I am, I immediately jumped all over this opportunity. Consequently, we enjoyed every minute of it! I mostly enjoyed watching my girls network while learning how to build conversation in a professional setting. The ultimate win for the day was the tour of The Geodis Soccer Stadium and the overall feeling of empowerment. If you have not already, check out this awesome organization!
I have attached the event overview (provided by PLAG) and link to the PLAG website, including the presenters, below for those interested in participating in the amazing program.
