NWWB is all about enhancing women’s lives. Member Margaret Pommert, educated as an engineer, is spearheading a great opportunity for young girls. Think of daughters, granddaughters, daughters of friends. Consider this or pass on this notice and help get the word out about this opportunity.
Do you know a Seattle area middle school aged girl who could benefit from more exposure to science, technology, engineering, math… and sailing? Heck, all of us would benefit, right? 🙂
Enrollment is underway for The Center for Wooden Boats and Frog Prints e Thursday after-school program, starting in January.
