Registration Opens for Girls Exploring Tomorrow’s Technology
More than 50 organizations offer interactive experiences in Science, Technology, Engineering & Math for girls grades 5 - 10
Online registration opens Sunday, February 14 for the 16th annual Girls Exploring Tomorrow’s Technology (GETT), for girls from more than 100 schools across the region. The girls in fifth through tenth grades will work with women role models to do everything from build rockets, design roller coasters, create mobile apps, extract DNA and construct suspension bridges. GETT, which is presented by the Chester County Economic Development Council (CCEDC) and the Innovative Technology Action Group (ITAG), provides girls the opportunity to participate in hands-on activities in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) to encourage them to pursue careers in these fields. In addition, girls can visit more than 50 organizations offering interactive experiences during the tradeshow-style GETT Expo including companies such as West Pharmaceuticals, Vanguard, DVHIMSS, Evolve IP, AGI, HomeNet Automotive, Kinetic Physical Therapy, PJM and more. Special sessions designed just for the parent/educator track will be held concurrent to the student sessions and explore best practices on the road to STEM success, strategies for involvement and resources available.
