To an unknowing passerby, the event held at the Carmel Valley Library on November 8, 2015 would have seemed more like a game than an educational experience. Young girls rushed back and forth with shiny Easter eggs on spoons as their friends urged them to go faster. However, the event was not held simply for amusement. It was one of the many events held by the All Girls STEM Society, designed to teach young girls STEM topics. The math workshop was organized by a few local teens for girls from sixth to eighth grade. A second workshop was held immediately after this one for girls from third to fifth grade.
