Women’s History Month (March 1- March 31) is a month where we have the opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the achievements and accomplishments of women. All month long we will be celebrating women who have made notable contributions in STEM.
We kick off our celebration of Women’s History Month with our very own, Victoria Robinson!

“[I] look to inspire, enlighten, and mold the next generation of writers, aviators, architects, mathematicians, and beyond. By sharing [my] story, [I[ hope to be an inspiration and mentor to youth nationwide. [My] goal is to encourage youth to pursue their passions, broaden their perspectives, and create a pathway of opportunities.”victoriarobinson.org
