Revving up technology fast track for girls

The helicoptor landing at Great Valley High on Saturday will be no cause for alarm. It’s one of the ways that the Innovative Technology Action Group is piquing girls’ interest in scientific and technology careers: The pilot will be female.

The 12th Annual Girls Exploring Technology program will be held at the high school from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Over 400 girls will be participating along with 100 parents and 35 educators. The program goal is to expose 6th- through 12-grade girls to skilled professionals in science, technology, engineering and math.
