Throughout the month of June, 28 young women have been participating in an educational experience called the Eureka Program.
Angie Hodge directs the program. She says this is the first year the nationwide program has been offered in Nebraska. Eureka offers 8th grade girls the opportunity to explore science, technology, engineering and math.
In addition to focusing on the STEM fields, Hodge says the program also helps build character, and encourage physical wellness.
