Girls in STEM
Each summer, the Museum of Discovery offers free one-week workshops for girls ages 12-15. The purpose of Girls in STEM is to give participants an opportunity to explore STEM careers with hands-on activities led by female STEM professionals, ultimately encouraging them to continue their STEM studies and even pursue STEM careers. The Museum of Discovery has made this a priority as there continues to be a gender gap in STEM careers with men outnumbering women.
In the spring of 2020, we compiled data; surveys; and interviews from Girls in STEM participants from over the years to determine the impact of the program, this is what we we learned: Girls in STEM’s Impact (pictures are from pre-Covid programs.)
