Xavier College Preparatory partnered with the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University to host its fourth annual “Girls Have IT Day” last Friday. The event, originally developed by Xavier students in conjunction with faculty, promotes young women’s involvement in science, information technology (IT), engineering, art and math (STEAM).

More than 500 middle school girls from around the Phoenix metropolitan area participated in the day’s events, along with over 100 Xavier students who mentored the younger students throughout the day. Hands-on activities had the students making customized lip gloss to floating concrete. Check out the gallery below – and thanks to Xavier College Preparatory for sharing photos!
