Women Rock Science

May 9, 2018
6:30 - 9:00pm

Women Rock Science is an inaugural event held at Cranbrook Institute of Science intended to bring awareness to the educational outreach programs at the Institute. Additionally, the event serves to celebrate women in STEM and STEAM education. Please note – men are welcome to attend!

Currently, over 20,000 Pre-K-12 students from communities such as Detroit, Southfield, Pontiac, Flint, and Hamtramck benefit from the Institute’s STEM and STEAM outreach programs.  The goal of Women Rock Science is to enable Cranbrook Institute of Science to expand the scope of this programming, thus ensuring that more students develop skills that are essential to succeeding in the 21st century.
