The Girls Soar! Aviation Day introduces girls in grades 3 – 12 to the amazing world of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) and to real-world applications in the airline industry. Our objective is to expose girls to positive and inspiring female role models in STEM and aviation-related careers. By doing so, we hope to ignite a passion for aviation and to fuel dreams of careers in this ever-growing field. We want girls who participate in this event to feel empowered and excited about the possibilities for their future!

This year’s theme is “Giving your dreams wings: stories of persistence and resilience”.
