RYE BROOK, N.Y. - Middle school girls from throughout the country were honored earlier this month by ThinkSTEAM, an organization founded by Lakeland High School student Jothi Ramaswamy. The organization handed out awards for its ThinkBIG Challenge at the Business Council of Westchester office on Wednesday, Aug. 3.

The ThinkBIG Challenge was designed to ignite students’ interest in science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM). It challenged girls to explore the importance of STEM by creating a 1-4 minute video inspiring girls to enter STEM fields and/or how this can be done through the arts.
