A few weeks ago, one of our youth ambassadors, Sierra Seabrease, was invited to be the keynote speaker at the Dream, Design, Do! Women in STEAM Festival hosted by Girl Scouts of Central Maryland. The event took place during the MD STEM Festival, a statewide, week-long festival which organized and supported a high number of events focused on promoting STEM to youth and families.
Sierra was asked to share her experiences with technology and the work she has done as part of our programs. Sierra delivered a short, but inspiring talk to a room full of young ladies as a kick off to the entire day of activities and workshops. She shared about her focal projects, including the Digital Jukebox Piano, which was included as part of the 2015 White House Science Fair, and gave advice to the girls to about pursuing their interests in STEM and made recommendations on how to do so.
We are so proud of all that Sierra has accomplished and are grateful that other organizations are interested in her work and perspective!
