‘SMART Girls’ Initiative Featured in Penn College Video

The latest addition to Penn College’s YouTube channel spotlights encouragement of young women to enter the lucrative STEM career sector with the SMART Girls program (Science & Math Applications in Real-World Technologies). Through diverse, hands-on workshops, the initiative introduces high-school girls to exciting technical careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. “SMART Girls is a way to help combat that increasing trend of girls diverting away from STEM occupations and really shying away from the occupations that are male-dominated,” said Elizabeth A. Biddle, K-12 project manager. “The idea is to engage girls in experiences that they may not otherwise had considered for career opportunities.”
