 Tech Savvy 2017: A Success!

Tech Savvy Michigan 2017 took place on April 29 and was a resounding success.  Over 150 girls and adults took part in various workshops focused on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).  Here are some quotes from the girls who participated:

“It’s life changing.”

“I loved learning more about STEM jobs, because before this I never knew about them.”

“I really enjoyed the great professors who put in their own time to teach us.”

 “Oh yeah, I am definitely coming back next year.  It was a crazy good time – I love it.”
