Every year AAUW Fairfax City Branch along with McLean Area, Springfield-Annandale, and Vienna Area Branches as well as our co-sponsors Fairfax County Public Schools and Systemic Solutions of NOVA host hundreds of middle school girls in a career day event designed to educate and inspire the students to consider careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).

This year’s event will increase the number of students to around 500 and will be hosted at NOVA Annandale on March 10, 2018.  There will be 23 separate hands-on workshops with female professionals for the students and a number of informational presentations to their parents on resources, college financing options, and how to support their daughters.  More information to come as we get closer to the event.
