 Girls STEM Summit  Statewide is a one-day summit designed by
 Massachusetts non-profit, Jr.Tech, Inc. for girls in grades 8-12 to
 explore STEM career paths.  This important career event for girls will
 be held on Sunday, June 14, 2015 at Regis College in Weston, MA.  The
 event will run from 8:15 am - 4:15 pm.
 As with the past six Girls STEM Summits, this program focuses on girls
 in grades 8-12 who are interested in or curious about exploring
 careers in STEM fields.  Included in the day-long event will be a
 keynote speech from a local female leader in a STEM field, career path
 workshops led by local, female STEM professionals, exploration of high
 school and college preparatory skills for STEM programs and degrees,
 and the opportunity for girls to connect with other young women who
 share their academic interests.
 The key goals of the STEM Summit are to educate young women on various
 STEM career paths through hands-on breakout sessions, to encourage
 students to continue studying these disciplines throughout high school
 in preparation for college degree programs, to inspire through
 interaction with female professional role models working in STEM, and
 to demonstrate that a STEM career is attainable.
 Online registration and additional information is available through
 the Jr.Tech, Inc., website at www.juniortech.org
 The registration fee is $55 for the day-long event and includes
 participation in hands-on career sessions, keynote speaker, lunch,
 raffle prizes and giveaways.  A limited number of scholarships are
 available.  Registration can be done individually or as a
 school/organization group.  Group that register between 5-20 students
 may send up to two chaperones to the event at no cost (lunch/snacks

 The Girls STEM Summit  Statewide program is hosted by Jr.Tech, Inc.

 Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education.  We aim to
