The Division is hosting a STEM event to show young women the possibilities available in STEM careers, and how those careers can change the world.
The “Changing the World! – Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math” event will be Feb. 9 from in two sessions, one at 9 a.m. and one at 11 a.m. in the Regional Technology Center on the MCC main campus in Flint.
