Snappening CEO chosen as national advisory board member with STEM focus
INDIANAPOLIS – Snappening founder, president and CEO, Crystal Grave, was recently selected to serve as a member of a new national advisory board focused on getting girls excited about STEM education and future careers in the industry.
The STEM Princess movement, created by its founder Erin Albert, started to encourage girls to choose STEM/STEAMED careers. The movement includes a trilogy of books—a storybook, activity book and coloring book—to engage youth in a fun and meaningful way. The main characters are princesses from planet STEM—each of whom serve important roles on their planet and partake in different areas of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
A total of ten (10) women (including Grave) who are in STEM careers or similar leadership positions within the United States, have been selected as advisory board members. The purpose of this advisory board is to ensure that #STEMPrincess educational events, resources and programs are ‘edutaining’ and compelling for the next generation of girls who choose STEM careers.
“I am honored and excited to have been chosen as one of the nine advisory board members for this movement,” said Grave. She added, “Encouraging young women to join the STEM field is very important to me and I’m glad I can be a part of it.”
