Terry Dear, Vice President of Software Development at BMS and Program Chair of WITI Inc. in Orange County, partnered with Girls Inc. to promote STEM awareness to local high school girls. STEM is a national initiative that prepares girls (and boys) for futures in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math. During this event, local space technology company, SpaceX, helped by donating 40 Firehawk rocket kits to Girls Inc. for use at their local schools. Terry says, “building rockets is one way to spark excitement about technology in our younger female generations.”

Events like these help to promote the fields of science and technology in exciting new ways. As new technologies continue to develop, computer skills are going to be an ever growing demand in our future. Terry dedicates much of her free time to helping support, promote, inspire and empower the next generation of women in technology.
