Lydia has found her family, which is wonderful news. I’ve seen her on TV before. The fifth-grader, who aims to be an engineer, is one of the young ladies helped by the program, which familiarizes students with contemporary technical breakthroughs so that they can pursue higher education in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).

Women who are currently prospering in the field of ICT and young girls who wish to pursue professions in ICT and STEM were featured at the event.
