  • YSD Girls Inspired to Explore STEM During Visit to Microsoft

    Posted by Manuel Rodriguez on 10/11/2018

    Technologchicas GameOn

    Students from Franklin and Washington Middle Schools (WMS) visited Microsoft on October 5, to attend a Nuevo Foundation workshop focused on encouraging female students to consider careers in STEM fields.  The 22 girls, who are also part of Central Washington University’s Game On! program, engaged in hands-on activities, connected with STEM professionals from Microsoft, Google, NASA, and the National Center for Women & Information Technology, and toured the Microsoft campus.  The impact of this experience on the students was immediate. “I wanted to be a nurse, but now I want to work for NASA because one of the ladies inspired me to be an engineer.  I think it’s fascinating because you design things to go on the NASA spaceship,” WMS seventh-grader Dayana Abundiz said.

    CWU Game On! is a free program for middle-- and high school students that educates them about core values, leadership, social and digital literacy, and college-ready skills by using computer and soccer training. The free program is made available through a partnership with the Yakima School District, the Real Madrid Foundation, Microsoft, and Central Washington University.
