By Flinn Foundation

The Arizona Science Center has been selected as the new Southwest office of the Girls, Math & Science Partnership  (GMSP), a program of Carnegie Science Center, with the goal  to engage, educate, and embrace girls as architects of change. Working with girls age 11-17 and their parents, teachers, and mentors, ASC will partner with organizations, stakeholders, and communities in an effort to ensure that girls succeed in math and science.
 
A special girls kick-off event is scheduled for Feb. 21 and programming such as Smart & Sweet Saturdays, Tour for Future meetings with female science industry leaders, pajama parties, camps, BrainCake workshops and so much more will start in March.
