It was an amazing day for the Marshall Fundamental Heart Association Nursing Health Club lead by Counselor, Ms. Frances Collins-Moore. On Friday, September 20th they attended an event hosted by the American Red Cross entitled, STEM Goes Red.
This STEM event was designed to provide young girls insights into the possibilities and potential they possess in making a real impact on the world around them. The “STEM Goes Red” day-long event’s purpose was to inspire an extraordinary group of local high school girls to explore STEM outside the classroom. Through the STEM Goes Red Goals:
• Engage young women and mentors in STEM Goes Red
• Increase the number of women pursuing STEM degrees in higher education
• Close the gender gap in STEM jobs
• Arm students with tools and resources to experience good health and well-being

Ms. Collins-Moore stated, the students were great and got involved and engineered a robot. They were able to network, meet with industry professionals, and gain invaluable knowledge about women’s health.
What an amazing opportunity for these young ladies.
