As a founding member of the Girls Got IT: Exploring Engineering and Technology in Lebanon, I am excited to give an insider view of this exciting initiative that brought together more than 400 girls in Lebanon. Each girl was enrolled in a three hour workshop on a topic related to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and design, and Mathematics). There were 21 workshops in total provided by 19 different institutions including coding and development, environmental engineering, hands-on engineering, design and animation, architecture, interior design, urban planning, and innovation. The event turned out to be a great success and the girls showed very high levels of empowerment.
