STEM for Social Good


Calling all STEMinists!

Girls and women are underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. We’re bridging the gender gap in these fields by inspiring girl leaders to use STEM skills to create solutions to problems in their communities. That’s STEM for Social Good.

The Facts

Gen Z is Avidly Interested in STEM.

Unfortunately, there are often significant barriers for girls who want to pursue STEM careers or access STEM education. The goal of STEM for Social Good is to educate and inspire girls everywhere to use STEM skills to promote gender equality and change the world.

We have resources, developed in partnership with Carnegie Science Center, to help girls who are interested in science, technology, engineering, arts and design, and mathematics get started. The activities range in difficulty level making it a great resource for girls with varied experiences in STEM.

Our STEM tours and WiSci camps help make science more accessible to girl leaders. 

From worksheets to workshops to international STEAM camps for girls, we’re building up the next generation of STEMinists and problem-solvers, one solution at a time.

STEMinists for Change

Together, we are working hard to create new hands-on opportunities for all the STEMinists out there. Join our FREE online Step Up for STEM course as part of our STEM For Social Good programming to discover how you can use your STEM skills to create an inclusive community event and advance gender justice in STEM!
