We are looking for professionals working in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields to help inspire girls to pursue their interest in STEM fields. Volunteers provide 10-minute presentations to the girls on their education and career paths; current jobs; and challenges and emerging opportunities in their particular STEM field. Speakers engage in Q&A with the girls, and they may also assist teachers in the facilitation of hands-on learning activities. The learning activities will be distributed, in advance, to speakers who would like to participate. We have Stellar Girl's locations in the following Chicagoland areas and neighboring suburbs: Northwest Chicago, Southwest Chicago, South Chicago, Skokie, Lincolnwood, Wheeling, Elgin, Bedford Park, Summit, Oswego, Hanover Park and Manhattan.
