STEM4Girls – instilling a love for STEM in girls everywhere
Women are vastly underrepresented in STEM fields and this can only be changed by changing the attitudes young girls have towards STEM. STEM4Girls works to bring fun, educational workshops and camps available garner the interest of young minds in the hopes that it will help them throughout their lives.
STEM4Girls has sponsored and provided mentorship to multiple FIRST Robotics teams and offers grants to teams that encourage girls to participate in STEM. In addition STEM4Girls runs various camps throughout the year where students learn about programming, robotics, and science through hands-on activities. Recently, STEM4Girls has partnered with a local child care center to create RoboRink, a dedicated center for students to explore robotics.
