Outreach and giving back to the community is a big part of what our organization does on and off campus. Our two main outreach events include Girls Learning Air and Space Sciences (GLASS) Day in the spring and State Farm Millennium Girls in the fall. If you are interested in helping out with our events and getting involved, please join our group on the Grainger Student Portal to receive our email newsletters!
