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.
