University hosts SMART day: preparing girls for STEM careers

January 16, 2018

University of Detroit Mercy proudly sponsored the Pearl SMART Network event, Science, Mathematics, Art, Reading, and Technology (SMART) Day for girls 8 to 18 this past weekend.

“Our goal is to inspire, motivate, and encourage girls to pursue careers in STEM,” said Dee Pearl, founder of the Pearl SMART Network and Detroit Mercy alumna.  “The girls will also have an opportunity to meet college students, connect with other STEM girls from the metro Detroit area and gain a support system to help them further pursue SMART careers.”

The event was filled with workshops for girls to explore SMART learning, Detroit Mercy student panel discussion and a campus tour.
