2018

On March 25, we had the great pleasure to launch our signature g4g Day in Andover, Massachusetts with the support of an amazing local team and 20 dedicated volunteers! 50 girls came to the Philips Academy for a day full of science fun. Apart from hands-on workshops, the girls had the chance to meet our special guest speaker, Scarlett Koller from SpaceX in California. This event was made possible thanks to the support of the Abbot Grant and hosted by Philips Academy in their Kemper Auditorium. Thank you Jackie Rossi and your team of volunteers from Philips Academy for leading the way! Have a peek at what this fantastic day looked like!
