Outreach

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, please email our Secretary to be added to our mailing list and kept in the loop! Registration for the next GLASS Day can be found below, as well as our other outreach events throughout the year.

State Farm Millennium Girls

WIA typically has two exhibits, including film canister rockets and a liquid nitrogen display, in which the girls are able to interactively participate with the various experiments.
