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. Thus we created the GSG program as a fun, educational program for girls, especially designed to spark interest in science, technology, engineering, and math. GSG is a two-day program that serves middle school girls. 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 aerospace. The pilot program was held at Barclay Elementary School in Baltimore, MD in April 2011 (see gallery below for pictures). This program included hands-on optics and rocketry experiments and presentations from female faculty members and students from Johns Hopkins University.
The next GSG will be held in the Summer of 2014. Check back for more details coming soon!
