Mission

The committees from both Redlands and Banning/Beaumont Pass organize yearly day-long conferences for 8th grade girls. The speakers relate the need for math and science in their particular career field and encourage the girls to continue their math and science studies in high school. PLUS, the Pass Area interest group sponsors girls for summer Tech Trek. We are ALL ABOUT STEM!!STEM2014leaders
