Girls gather STEAM
This summer, Behrend welcomed fifty seventh- and eighth-grade female students who attended Wabtec Girls With STEAM, a weeklong science, technology, engineering, and math camp where attendees are paired with female mentors from Wabtec Corporation. Lab and classroom sessions were led by female faculty members and Wabtec engineers.
