BridgeUp: STEM

Thursday, March 16, 2017 | 7–8:30 pm

Historically, women have been underrepresented in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields.  In February 2015, the Museum launched BridgeUp: STEM, a computer science program for young women. Please join Ruth Cohen, Senior Director of Education, as she discusses the Museum’s newest educational program–and its use of computer science in the observation, research, and communication of science. A cocktail reception will follow.
