Girls Networking Across the Nation

A new resource has been shared by a member of the Lynhurst STEM Club for Girls. One of their members reached out, after finding the STEM West website and its resources, to thank the organization for hosting this website and sharing information. In return, she shared another resource with us: Women in Engineering. This site highlights women in engineering and technology. This is what networking and helping others is all about!
