Florence, SC – January 23, 2017- Afterschool program launches Florence’s first gender-based day academy to introduce pre-schoolers to STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) “Girls University”.

Girls University was established to motivate, inspire and educate girls in the Pee Dee.  Identifying the need to provide girls with programming combine with specialized tools, allows for Girls University to create a model of success.  Understanding the shortage of women entering STEAM fields and the numerous career opportunities we decided to launch Girls U Mini Miss STEAM Academy.

Girls University are great supporters of the STEM movement and are always encouraging girls hoping they break out of those stereotypes and dive into fields that have not been historically filled by women. We know it’s not always easy, but we agree with exposure and support to solve the problem and offer more diverse offerings for students at a younger age in order to get all students hooked on science, tech, engineering and math as soon as possible in their education careers.

Girls University will host their grand opening for Mini Miss STEAM Day Academy on February 7th, 2017 at their location located at 1249 Celebration Blvd, 29501 from 10:00 am to 11:00 am.
