STEAM Academy encourages girls, especially minorities, to pursue science and tech careers
from Omaha World-Herald
Women are underrepresented in science and technology, but minority women are especially sparse. A summer academy put on by the Urban League of Nebraska seeks to pique the interest of African-American and other girls in science, technology, engineering, agriculture, the arts and math. So it's called the STEAM Academy. The girls visited the DLR Group — an architecture and engineering firm — heard speakers, toured the facility and built paper towers.
