As the pace of technological improvement speeds up, a solid education in the STEM fields – science, technology, engineering and math – is increasingly vital for students seeking bright futures. It can be a challenge to take math and science lessons learned in the classroom and apply them in the real world, so hands-on technical experience can be invaluable.
Over the years and across a variety of measures, female students tend to lag behind their male classmates entering highly-technical fields such as engineering and computer science. Fortunately, there is an innovative program right here in New Hampshire that is helping to close that gap, and give Granite State girls an opportunity for a hands-on, high-tech education.
