girls from Iroquois and Van Antwerp Middle Schools participated
in the Girls STEM Summit at the HVCC TEC-SMART Campus in Malta
on Dec. 16. Each of the girls were able to choose three
workshops to attend throughout the summit. Workshop topics
ranged from creating catapults to chromatography.
Gili Rusak, who created a mobile app while she was in high school, spoke to the group of girls to encourage and inspire their interests in the science, technology, engineering and math fields. Rusak’s "Codester" app helps users learn coding.
