A nice and in-depth story about a science and engineering outreach program for young women in San Diego, in the Union Tribune. The program is Better Education for Women in Science & Engineering program (BEWiSE). Check out the story by Karen Kucher in the Oct 24 issue of the UT entitled "Program inspiring young women to discover science".
