GIRLS IN STEM: John Jay Science and Engineering Academy

The NISD magnet school fosters a love of science

SAN ANTONIO – February 11 marks International Day of Women and Girls in Science. It’s a day to celebrate women involved in STEM, and a day to encourage girls to think science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
