Our girls get to engage in hands-on activities including 3D printing with FlashForge Printer, creating animations, and exploring science through our hands-on experiments. Watch the video below to hear from some of our participants and their parents

Our Planning Committee includes: Angeline Chen, Christina Lisotto, Ricky Biel, Rick Ramirez, Sean and Monica Andrade, Ulisses Sanchez, Antonio Villegas, Joyce Leckband, Albert Hernandez, Olivia Garcia, Jeff Baietto, Jor Law, Dawn Kim, and Mitchell Tsai.
