The programme scheduled for Bille community in Rivers State is sequel to virtual inauguration of the Supernova Girl initiative which targets early grooming of girls in senior and junior secondary schools into taking careers in science and technology related disciplines.

The organisation said the fair would be grand inspiration programme for girl children with keen interests in studying mathematics and science subjects, as WIEN would come with strong motivational incentives that include scholarships, dressings, books and other instructional materials.

The President, WIEN, Funmi Ogbue, said scholarships would be awarded to 15 students selected through written exams and science experiment across the three cadres.
