Menlo Park: Junior League helps girls in tech

 

A $100,000 grant is on the way to The Tech Museum of Innovation, courtesy of the Junior League of Palo Alto-Mid Peninsula, to help promote opportunities for girls in science, technology, engineering and math education.

The league, which is based in Menlo Park and founded the museum in 1976, is working on several projects, including workshops and mentoring, and pairing league members with girls participating in The Tech Challenge, an annual team design challenge.

"We are thrilled to partner again with The Tech to create new programs that focus on sustained engagement of girls in STEM, an issue we determined critical to our local community," said Joy Baker Peacock, Project Development Committee co-chair and immediate past president.
