GIRLS PREP ULTIMATE PI DAY 5K
More than 500 runners and numerous volunteers, parents, supporters and scholars came out for the Girls Prep Ultimate Pi Day 5K, Saturday, March 14, 2015, at 9:26:53 AM, (the first 10 digits of Pi). At the race, Girls Prep students showcased their knowledge at a STEM expo. Presentations included habitats, erosion, a robot, and 3-D models of cells.
Thank you to everyone who supported the run! Your participation will help us develop the next generation of female scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians. The funds raised are supporting the robust STEM programs in our schools, including teaching girls to code, summer programs at West Point, Cornell and Stephens College, partnerships with i2Camp and Leave it Better, and much, much more!
At Girls Prep, we recognize the importance of instilling a love of science, mathematics, engineering, and technology in our girls. This a once-in-a-century opportunity to run 3.14 miles on 3/14/15 at 9:26:53 AM (celebrating the first 10 digits of Pi--our girls often memorize many more than that!) will help prepare future (we let the girls fill in the blank!)

With nearly half of New York City's failing schools residing in the Bronx, elected officials stood with community members, clergy, and parents to call for an end to the crisis, and for the expansion of excellent charter schools like Girls' Prep Bronx.
