Sacrmento STEM Center + MakerSpace
American River Messenger: "'At Intel, we are committed to opening doors to opportunity for girls here in Northern and Central California, and we believe this STEM Center + Makerspace will inspire these girls and give them the skills they’ll need to become future innovators,' says Courtney Martin, Intel public affairs director."
Macaroni Kid feature: "This little six year old ran to hide behind me shaking her head saying she couldn't, wouldn't, had not clue how to do it. After a single example, my daughter's creativity took off and she spent almost the entire time on that wall building a ramp and a trap to catch a marble. Her creativity and excitement was off the charts, which made this engineer mama's heart go pitter patter. The confidence she gained in the two hours we were at the STEM Center + MakerSpace was nothing short of amazing."

Modesto Bee: "One of those role models is the center’s first-ever Local Legend. The honor went to Erica Kennedy, 26, is a sensory analyst for E.&J. Gallo Winery in Modesto who works with wine aromatics. The former Girl Scout has degrees in food science from the University of California, Davis and the University of Georgia. The center hopes to name a new Local Legend each year, who will be enshrined on the center’s wall."
Modesto Bee: "Enochs student Marley Calbreath, 15, said she's most enthused about the "living room" in the STEM center. Peters referred to it as the "unplugged" part of the building. 'It's such a good haven for the girls to imagine what can do with simple objects,' Marley said. 'It's mostly just an imagine room, and I’m so excited about helping design it.'"
Comstock's Magazine: "Giving girls the opportunity to experience a single-gender environment can do wonders, helping them to develop the courage, confidence and character they need to get through life."
