Girls in STEM
We believe in empowering girls by engaging them in hands-on, real-world activities to show STEM is relevant and fun in an ever-changing world. Female STEM professionals support each program and student by giving them guidance to navigate a male-dominated workforce. This program is open to any female student currently enrolled in 4th-8th grade with a differentiated curriculum for each grade.
