The Full STEAM Ahead program, initiated by the Millcreek Education Foundation, just completed its third successful year.

Full STEAM Ahead is a before school, hands-on STEAM program for 5th grade girls in the five Millcreek Township Elementary Schools. Students are introduced to women mentors working in the field and participate in activities in eight learning sessions.

This is a “Make and Take” experience with the idea that each student will make something, take it with them to show their peers, their family, and others.
