Girls in Science and Engineering Day was created in 2011 as a unique event designed to inspire and empower Birmingham-area middle school girls to achieve and excel in science and engineering fields. The event was founded by UAB students Alison Barnard, DPT (class of 2012) and Farah Khan, MD (class of 2013), two friends who believe that all girls can be successful in science, math, engineering, or any subjects they desire to pursue! The current event directors are Kelsey Patterson (UAB MSTP) and Ramsha Farrukh (UAB Neuroscience undergraduate). Dr. Melanie Shores from the School of Education serves as a faculty advisor for GSED, and Lori Green serves as an additional event advisor.
