'STEAM' Event Held at NWA Golf Championship

ROGERS, Ar. -- A new event is taking over the 16 hole of the NWA golf championship in northwest Arkansas.

Walmart and P&G hosted the "Always Live Like a Girl STEAM Day" event.

If you aren't familiar with the term, STEAM stands for: science, technology, engineering, art and math. 

The companies invited more than 100 girls to its STEAM center where professionals encouraged them to explore careers in those areas.

Experiments at interactive stations taught the kids the importance of each subject in a fun way. 

"Help them to build confidence to go after and chase the dreams of their future," Mindy Sherwood, P&G Vice President said. "Many, many jobs use different aspects of STEAM."

Walmart and P&G will host the "Always Live Like a Girl STEAM Day" event every year during the northwest Arkansas championship.
