The panel will include female scientists and engineers as well as a female professional football player. On Saturday we will also offer performances by collegiate cheerleaders, live science demonstrations, cheer clinics with local cheerleaders, hands-on experiments with engineers and scientists, and so much girl power it will blow you mind!
