FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) will host its annual Math Science Breakfast on Friday, April 25 from 8 to 10:30 a.m. in the Fallbrook Library community room.
The event, jointly sponsored by the Fallbrook AAUW Branch and the Fallbrook Union Elementary School District, was developed to inspire and encourage seventh and eighth grade girls to seek careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
The girls in attendance are chosen by their teachers for their interest and talent in the STEM fields and come from the five junior high schools in the area. The 2013 Tech Trek campers will also be in attendance and will discuss their program experiences.
The keynote speaker for this year’s event will be Julie Hill a mechanical engineer with Exxon Mobil’s Torrance Refinery. Hill, who is passionate about environmental sustainability, has spent much of her time with the company as an environmental advisor. She also is an active member of the Society of Women Engineers.
