GUTS y Girls engages tomorrow’s women in science & math

GUTS y Girls is a three-year ITEST project designed to attract New Mexico girls to careers in STEM -- fields in which women are historically under-represented.  Once-a-month Saturday workshops in Santa Fe will offer girls the opportunity to meet women scientists and professionals, participate in hands-on projects, and learn about career options. Two-week summer workshops are being held in Santa Fe, Albuquerque, and Las Cruces.
