5 ESUMS seniors hosting a 4-week program in which 15 5th-8th girls will take part in numerous STEM-based activities and meet professionals currently invested in the STEM field. No payment required.
We wish to encourage the bright minds of young girls to feel confident when exploring STEM fields. From robots and coding to science and real-world applications, we hope to help build strong women ready for the STEM field.
A Unique Approach
Our program is a mixture of hands-on projects, online simulations, and always fun interactions with professionals. We have planned games, powerpoints, and take home projects exploring different areas of STEM that apply to everyday life.
The representation of females in STEM fields is staggering low, even though there are enough girls interested in careers. We want to challenge the stigma that achieving a STEM degree after highschool is unlikely, by presenting professionals who are living proof of successful women in STEM.
