AMARILLO, Texas(KAMR/KCIT) —Girls Who Science is a NEW program put on by the Don Harrington Discovery Center. Girls aged 10-18 will learn from women in the STEM industry, conduct interactive experiments, and explore career-focused STEM activities AT NO COST to participants.

This program will begin on Feb. 6 and be the first Monday of every month from 4:45 pm to 6:00 pm.

Esteemed women professionals in the STEM industry will be brought in for conversations, a presentation, and Q&A’s with young women aspiring to go into STEM. After the presentation from the guest speaker, the Discovery Center will also provide an activity related to their field of study.
