Cumberland Valley ESTEEM
, Cumberland Valley Exploring Science, Technology, Engineering, Earth Science and Mathematics, an event for 7th grade female students interested in STEM careers was held on Friday, May 15, 2015. The purpose of this free day-long event for seventh grade girls and their teachers is to encourage young women to pursue careers in scientific, technological, engineering and mathematical fields, per Debbie Gochenaur the event Program Director. Almost 250 girls with over two dozen teachers and parents from seven area middle schools participated in the event. A big thank you goes out to the 70 volunteers, without whom the event would not be possible. ESTEEM gratefully thanks Gannett-Fleming, Carey Custom Tees, and Dignitas Remodeling for their gracious financial support of the event.
