DVIRC Dream Team visits Girls, Inc.

The DVIRC PA Dream Team had the pleasure of meeting with the Girls Inc.’s Early Grade Literacy program (Discovery) on Saturday, January 13, 2024.

At Girls Inc., girls learn to set and achieve goals, boldly confront challenges, resist peer pressure, see college as attainable, and explore nontraditional fields such as STEM. The Discovery program is designed for girls in grades K-3 and inspires all girls to be strong, smart, and bold.

Lisa Miller, Automation Engineer with Greene, Tweed, met with 12 eight-year-old Discovery girls to talk to them about STEAM. Lisa read the book Ada Twist, Scientist, and was able to engage the girls in thoughtful questions regarding the topics of science and manufacturing.

DVIRC also left behind an Advanced Manufacturing coloring book that the girls were able to take home with them.
