Girl Scouts Louisiana East recently held its second annual STEM Extravaganza. The event is designed to get girls excited about science, technology, engineering and math — fields typically dominated by men. Girl Scouts from grades K-12 came to the event, held at Dillard University.

Tulane University is reaching out to girls attending middle school with an opportunity to focus on science, technology, engineering and math. Organizers hope a one-day workshop will pique their interest in subjects that have historically attracted more boys than girls.
