Promotional videos have been posted, and GDH recaps have been posted in the past. Here’s some information from the Adler Planetarium on the 2015 installment of Girls Do Hack.
Who: 80 young women, in grades 9-11, from across the city of Chicago
What: The young women will have the opportunity to engage in activities that emphasize skills needed to pursue careers in a variety of STEM (Science, Technology Engineering, Math) fields through hands-on, minds-on experiences and workshops.
How: GDH is created by a team of Adler’s scientists, educators and program specialists, matching girls with actual female STEM professionals that act as mentors.
Why: Women currently make up less than 1/4 of the workforce in STEM fields.
The event is sponsored by Teza Technologies and Misha Malyshev.
