Merlene Davis: Workshop features role models to encourage girls interested in science, technology and math

Knowing that, I think my parents probably would have been among the first to register my sister, along with her kid sister, for Kentucky Tech Savvy, a one-day hands-on workshop for middle school girls interested in science, technology, engineering and math.
