On April 7, 2018 we went to Bridgewater State University to welcome 130 girls aged 11 to 15 from local communities for our 3rd annual g4g Day @BSU in partnership with BSU's Center for the Advancement of STEM Education (CASE). After meeting with Dr. Diana Fox, Professor of Anthropology and Department Chair at BSU, our guest speaker for the event, the girls got to spend their morning engaged in hands-on workshops showing the link between STEM and their everyday life. One of our favorite moments? When one of the girls made her own model of the lungs in a bottle and shouted “Everything is Science!”!! A huge thanks to all the 40 volunteers who dedicated their time, our friends at BSU and Sarah and Thila who joined us for this fun day!
