Great Space for Girls (G.S.G.)
Nothing can hold you back, not even gravity!
Here at Sol-X, we all share a love of science and a fascination with the world around us, and we are interested in mentoring the next generation of future scientists, engineers, and doctors. We created the GSG program as a fun, educational program for young women, especially designed to spark interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). GSG is a two-day program that serves middle school girls (grade 6 to 8 and/or ages 11 to 13). This no cost program features hands-on STEM activities and experiments led by Sol-X engineers as well as inspirational and educational presentations by professional women in the aerospace industry. The pilot program was held at Barclay Elementary School in Baltimore, MD (see gallery below for pictures). This program included hands-on optics, rocketry experiments, and presentations from female faculty members and students from Johns Hopkins University. The next GSG will be held in the Summer of 2018 at the Autodesk Gallery at 1 Market Street Suite #200 San Francisco, CA.
