April 10, 2012 – Victor Valley College Performaing Arts Center

We were invited by the AAUW-Victorville for their annual event Celebrating Women in Mathematics and Science. It took about 2 hours to drive out to Victorville, but it was well-worth the trip. There were about 200 teenage girls there, and we were the keynote of the day. The kids were pretty excited about our performance. To them, our characters are from a far away history. But we were able to tell the stories of powerful women making a difference in the world because they fought back.

The kids thought we were awesome. You can see their comments on the students’ testimonial page. They said things like:

“This was wonderful!! I learned even more than I thought I knew. Thank you!” – high school student

“The show was very informative, making me understand the role of women. I liked it very much, especially its wonderful actors and humor.” – Oak Hills High School student, San Bernardino County
