Suffolk Branch has a history of supporting STEM Academics. Our “Girls Can 2” program proved to be a success among middle-schoolers. The day long event introduced young ladies from middle school to careers considered to be non-traditional. In the past, we collaborated with the Boys and Girls Club, The College of William and Mary and Nansemond River Preservation Alliance and participated in a Science Fair Presentation for the students at the summer camp. Through AAUW VA, a STEM grant was awarded to the Boys and Girls Club to buy equipment.
