Since 1991, Woodbridge AAUW has supported the Girls + Science + Math = SUCCESS! Conference. In 2019, approximately 150 5th-12th graders with 100 parents, teachers, and guests- attended the 29th annual conference at Marsteller Middle School, in Bristow. The career conference targets students in grades 5-12 and is open to all public, private, and home-schooled students and the adults in their lives- parents, educators, and community leaders.
With a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math (STEAM) – a wide range of career presenters will provide awareness of the importance of STEAM courses and the many career opportunities for the students; adults have a separate track of workshops which include support for empowering their children/students.

Conference presenters include careers from both traditional and non-traditional fields in Math and Science for women. It is exciting to note that students who have previously attended the conference are now presenting in their chosen career field and parents of former student attendees are presenting, too.
Major corporate sponsors who provide funding for the conference include Micron, Lockheed Martin, ProChain Solutions, NOVA SySTEMic, Aurora Flight Sciences, and NOVEC. You can see more on the conference’s website:
