Special guest Diane Genco, CEO of NJSACC: The Network for New Jersey's Afterschool Communities, demonstrated the life cycles of caterpillars while our students released monarch butterflies for their 8-week journey to Mexico.

Latina Sci Girls and TECHNOLOchicas ambassador, Sylvia Jeramillo-Regaldo, talked about her role as a Computer Engineer.

Thank you to our mentors for inspiring our young ladies to shoot for the stars!

Latina SciGirls® is an educational initiative produced by TPT - Twin Cities PBS, and funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), which addresses specific barriers that prevent many Hispanic girls from participating in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) studies, activities and career paths.
