What a day!! On May 8, 2018, we were thrilled to have had a brilliant second #g4gDayCincinnati event in partnership with Procter and Gamble GBS and with support from the University of Cincinnati, Greater Cincinnati STEM Collaborative, University of Cincinnati Research Institute, and Pilot Chemical! Our event brought together 320 girls aged 11-15 from the local community and nearly 200 role-model volunteers from different STEM backgrounds. The day kicked off with inspiring speakers and girls had the opportunity to come onstage to ask questions such as "at what age did you know you wanted to be a scientist?" and "have you ever failed at something and what did you learn from it?" Then, onto the workshops - with 21 hands-on activities such as polymerworms, DNA extraction, and more. At the end of the day, everyone got to use high-tech polling to measure feedback from the day and we’re proud to have had 94% of girls say that they are now more interested in STEM after our event – WOW! We’re so grateful to the time, dedication, and passion shown by all those who took part! Until next year Cincinnati!
