MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) - Hundreds of girls gathered at the Science Museum of Minnesota for "Girls, Science, and Technology" on Saturday.
The event allowed girls to get an up-close and hands-on experience with various experiments. Along with FOX 9 meteorologists and anchors, special guests at the event included Kate the Chemist.
She says her goal is to empower girls.
"Part of my mission is when I travel across the country is I'm trying to interact with as many students as possible, and just try to show them a different version of a scientist," said Kate. "Because my goal is I want the next generation of scientists to grow up and not even know there was a weirdness of women and STEM."
Various demonstrations and activities for the girls include interactive coding challenges, a glow wall, and even a chance to explore the inside of a heart.
