Statistics continue to show that girls are not embracing careers in technology, despite an increasing need for skilled professionals in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) fields in Pennsylvania and the nation.
Girl’s Exploring Tomorrow’s Technology (GETT) is a free, fun, informational event for middle and high school girls in grades 5 through 10 and their parents that features successful women in technology. Attendees learn the facts about how technology careers can be fulfilling, fun and rewarding personally, professionally and financially.
The 18th Annual Girls Exploring Tomorrow’s Technology (GETT) conference was held on March 17th at Phoenixville Middle School with more than 1,200 in attendance – the biggest GETT ever – including 912 students and 324 parents and educators. Students had the opportunity to explore 106 STEM activities during the GETT Expo represented by 63 Companies, Universities and Professional Organizations – each with unique hands-on STEM activities. More than 79 volunteers assisted in the day’s logistics and activities.
