Edison Opens Doors To Technology Fields for Young Women with Annual Event

Edison will host more than 200 young women and their teachers from Miami, Darke and Shelby Counties on Friday, Nov. 16, for the seventh annual “We Are IT!” day, a program designed to help boost girls’ interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields.

Girls participating in the event have the opportunity to get hands-on experience working with robotics, examining and calculating crime scene data and discovering the secrets of movie special effects. Nearly 15 different breakout sessions will be held with participants attending three different ones throughout the day.

Spaces to attend this exciting and informative event are very limited, and early registration is strongly encouraged. To register, contact Cathy Barrow at, or call 937-778-7885. The event starts Friday morning at 8:30 a.m. at Edison’s Piqua Campus.

This will be the seventh year that Edison has hosted the event, which last year had more than 3,000 statewide participants. The event is sponsored by the Ohio Department of Education, Office of Career-Technical Education in collaboration with the Ohio IT Business Advisory Network.
