About the Program

Penn College developed Science and Math Applications in Real-World Technologies (SMART) Girls to counter an alarming academic and social trend: Girls tend to shy away from math and sciences as they enter adolescence and their important high school years. SMART Girls provides young females the opportunity to experience math and science as a foundation for careers in technology.

This year’s participants will have a service-oriented opportunity to "MAKE a difference" in The Dr. Welch Workshop, a makerspace at Penn College, as well as hone their career-decision-making skills in a variety of other activities.
