GIRLS Advancing in STEM Conference

The GAINS conference connects girls interested in STEM with peers and role models, gives girls access to information about STEM careers through interactions with STEM professionals and educates girls about STEM-focused research being led by women.

We host small-group sessions including, technical talks, virtual STEM tours and a career mixer.  Since the conference is virtual this year we hope to host 250 students and teachers for the day.         

  • Connect with women working and studying in STEM fields
  • Hear about STEM careers
  •  Learn about interesting STEM research and topics
  • Meet other high school girls interested in STEM
