Fifty fifth-grade girls from Walt Disney Elementary School were invited to participate in the “Snap the Gap” kickoff event at the Disneyland Grand Californian Hotel. This event was made possible through a partnership between the Magnolia School District and the Disney Resort. Snap the Gap’s mission is to instill every girl (aged 10-12) in the United States with the confidence and skills needed to pursue STEM in college and careers. Currently, there are many more men than women in STEM careers. Snap the Gap aims to close this gender gap.
