Parkwood 8th Graders Learn from MIT Students

UCPS was chosen as one of the locations for MIT’s Women’s Initiative program which promotes young women pursuing careers in STEM.

During the week of January 27th, two MIT students traveled around the county speaking to middle school girls about STEM related fields.  Jobs available in this area are both exciting and relevant in today’s world.

PWMS 8th grade girls then got to create their own marble maze boards to demonstrate STEM principals in action. To learn more about MIT’s initiative please visit
