SciGirls is an Emmy-award winning PBS KIDS television series and website dedicated to changing the way millions of girls think about STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). Local educators are invited to participate in a FREE hands-on, minds-on Professional Development Training hosted by Girls Inc. at YWCA in Hamilton.
