Middle school girls learn about STEM careers at expo

PROVIDENCE – Middle school girls connected with professionals working in the STEM fields of science, technology, engineering and math at Tech Collective’s STEM in the Middle workshop recently.

Held at the Rhode Island STEM Center at Rhode Island College, 125 middle school students and 13 educators from Providence’s Sophia Academy, Times 2 STEM Academy and Paul Cuffee Middle School, and Central Falls’ Calcutt Middle School, attended the fifth annual event.

“The middle school years represent a crucial time of exploration and self-discovery for girls,” Carol Giuriceo, director of the Rhode Island STEM Center, said in a statement. “STEM in the Middle exposes them to new experiences in a safe and supportive environment. Hopefully, when the girls return to their schools, they will have a more comprehensive understanding of and connection to STEM and STEAM.”
