About

Are you an evangelist for getting more girls and young women interested in STEM? Have a knack for teaching or encouraging students to try new things?Then this is the perfect activity for you!

Come join us in events that is geared to inspiring young women and girls to BE all they can be.

STEM Kids NYC will be facilitating afterschool programs and Saturday programs throughout the school year. Your roles will be, but this is not an exclusive list:

1. Helping young girls build an app that addresses an issue affecting young women and girls

2. Support them in gaining more confidence to try new things, and even fail at them, as failing is simply a first attempt at learning.

3. Engineering an invention that will revolutionize the ___ industry (the young engineers will fill in the blanks)

No STEM experience necessary, but it would help. We are looking to involve as many volunteers who can serve as those 'holding the space' and supporting the STEM-Fabulous participants in using their creativity and ingenuity to make things that inspire their mind, body, and spirit.
