In honor of International Women’s Month, Walt Disney World Resort and the Orlando Science Center teamed up to bring an interactive and educational evening to more than 100 students from Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida.
During the special evening that centered around STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) principles, kids explored the museum with access to exhibits, including the new Kinetic Zone and Above and Beyond: The Ultimate Interactive Flight Exhibition.
A panel discussion featuring women in STEAM leadership roles from across Walt Disney World Resort sparked conversation around STEAM as well as leadership, inclusion and authenticity—all while sharing how students can carry lessons learned during the conversation into their everyday lives.
“These students are the innovators and leaders of tomorrow, and connecting them with leaders making a real difference in the diverse world of STEAM shows them that anything is possible,” said Tajiana Ancora-Brown, director of external affairs at Walt Disney World Resort.
Walt Disney World Resort has a decades-long relationship with Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida. In 2018, the organization received a $100,000 Disney Grant in support of their Lake & Sumter Counties club locations, and Disney VoluntEARs dedicated more than 600 collective hours to the organization.
