When Gustavia Pearls Women’s Outreach held a STEM festival with over 400 attendants and vendors, the ToolBank was happy to provide some tables and chairs for the event. The festival included free food (hot dogs and icees), games and giveaways. One of the vendors present was ToolBank member agency TXRX Labs with their 3D printed creations and also some special guests such as the ghostbusters.
This festival was a perfect example of Gustavia’s mission to inspire individual advancement in women & young girls. Although young women in STEM were the focal point of this festival, all people who wanted to participate and support were welcome. There were many different activities and games available to try, from programming robots, to flying a drone, to driving a remote control system. Vendors came ready to challenge the youths’ mind and cultivate their creativity.
