Girls in STEM

About 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.
