Calling all young FUTURES agents: do-gooders, plant lovers, citizen scientists, activists, advocates, dreamers and creators. Help us celebrate the power of girls and women in STEM shaping a better future. Meet real scientists and see their work in action. Explore women in science and their contribution to a more hopeful future on kid-friendly tours. Stop by for pop-up talks and hands-on science demos and crafts for all ages, hosted by AAAS IF/THEN Ambassadors. And enjoy the opening weekend of #IfThenSheCan – The Exhibit, a monumental display of more than 120 3-D printed statues celebrating contemporary women innovators in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), the most statues of real women ever assembled in one place. 

March is #WomensFuturesMonth at AIB, a celebration of all the ways women are transforming the world today–plus the female-focused success stories of tomorrow. 


This program is made possible by the generous support of Lyda Hill Philanthropies and the IF/THEN Initiative.
