  • I love this so much! It’s always great to see programs inspiring girls to make their mark in the world. STEM is the future ,and they need to be a part of that.

  • Heidi Spears-Gray

    STEM is quickly becoming the norm and it’s amazing to see organizations promote it. I have a problem with super heroes battling each other! I guess because they’re all good guys and should be going against bad guys. Color me old fashioned….

  • OurFamilyWorld

    What a great program to encourage and inspire young girls. STEM is very important. I had no idea there will be a new Thor movie. I’d love to see this.
