The Bloomfield Hills-based Cranbrook Institute of Science will host its second annual Women Rock Science fundraiser on May 17. The event will benefit programs for students and honor metro Detroiters who are furthering STEAM education. That is science, technology, engineering, arts, and math — the new and improved version of STEM.
Taking place from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., the goal of Women Rock Science is to raise funds for Cranbrook Institute of Science’s “Service to Other’s” initiatives, which provide STEAM outreach programs to more than 31,000 preK-12th grade students from underserved regions, including Pontiac, Flint, and Hamtramck.
