    Girl taking part in STEM programFor young women and girls interested in STEM subjects and careers, learning about science, technology, engineering and math opportunities can be as simple as doing an internet search.

    According to today’s educational advice column in the Detroit Free Press, using a search phrase like, “science and math summer enrichment,” plus your town, is a great first step when looking to enhance your STEM credentials.

    More specifically, the American Association of University Women (http://www.aauw.org/education/ngcp/NGCPresources.cfm) provide numerous resources for STEM-interested girls and young women and be sure to look into local Expanding Your Horizons (expandingyourhorizons.org) activities.
