Girls Advancing In Stem (GAINS) visit Department of Plant Biology

Stanford, CA—Recently, Heike Lindner, Ximena Anleu Gil and Therese Suren LaRue led a group of 15 high school girls from around the country for a tour of Carnegie Science labs. The students loved meeting Heike, Ying and Threse, touring the work space, hearing about their research and their career paths.

The GAINS Network is a school-based virtual community for high school girls interested in STEM topics. It is a place where high school girls interested in STEM can connect with each other and with women working and studying in STEM fields.
