I got to have fun and learn at the same time.

Meeting new people with the same interests as me.

Learning how to use the computer to make a robot move.

That we don’t just sit in class and learn, Girls In STEM actually lets us have fun while learning educational and cool stuff.

Girls In STEM Keynote- Roxanne Wilson

Girlstart is pleased to announce our Girls In STEM 2011 Conference Keynote speaker- Roxanne Wilson!

Roxanne  is Austin’s Girl-On-The-Go. If you’ve lived in Austin, you’ve probably heard her on the radio, seen her emcee a charity event, read her blog, or taken her Jazzercise class. Roxanne came to Austin as a budding young attorney to clerk for the Texas Supreme Court before heading to Dallas to continue her legal career. Seven years later she no longer practices law, has been fired by Donald Trump himself on NBC’s The Apprentice and can’t imagine living anywhere else but Austin.  Most recently, Roxanne was an on-air personality on 105.9 The River’s morning show. She recently joined The Liquidation Channel, a national jewelry home shopping network based in Austin, as a freelance host. A perfect day for Roxanne would consist of hosting a radio show, hosting a television show, blogging, and eating some Diablo queso at Maudies.

Roxanne will be talking to 4th through 8th grade girls at our Girls In STEM Conference on Saturday, March 26th about the importance of STEM and how to achieve their dreams and goals.
