The Junior League of Palo Alto•Mid Peninsula is investing in our next generation of female STEM leaders through strategic grant-making, coalition building and by partnering with local and national nonprofits on projects for direct service, capacity building and advocacy.  We are excited to announce new multi-year partnerships with The Tech Museum of Innovation and Technovation to engage girls in our community with innovative STEM education and programs.  This includes a $100,000 grant and volunteer support to launch Girls Day at The Tech and The Tech Challenge mentorship program.
