Bringing STEM professionals together to inspire others in the area seemed to be a perfect fit for the six girls in the troop, with most of them in the STEM Lv Leather Handbags
Fundraising efforts to send girls to a women's STEM conference in Corpus Christi led her, Marilyn Gilbert and Judge Elia Lopez to wonder why such an event couldn't be held in the Rio Grande Valley.
And her mother, Silvia Ramos, is definitely in her corner.
"I was not told and I know other women were not told 'You can do this,'" she said, thinking back to her upbringing.
The event attracted more than 100 attendees, most of them females, as a dozen speakers were scheduled to discuss their professions in small group sessions ahead of physics experiments led by the University of Texas at Brownsville's Physics Circus.

Participants from elementary grades, middle schools and high schools were able to hear from and ask questions of women and men in various STEM related occupations.
The 12 year old is in the seventh grade now, but has her eyes on a field in aerospace engineering, ideally with NASA, and isn't about to let society tell her it's a "boy job."
