Girls in STEM inspires girls to visualize themselves in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math careers and empowers them to pursue STEM professions.
Girls in STEM is a nonprofit organization designed to empower middle school and high school girls in the metro Denver area to seek out a STEM career post secondary education. We achieve this by connecting them with a network of professional women working in STEM industries who are visible and accessible to serve as role models and/or mentors to empower girls so that they can identify with and ultimately visualize themselves in a similar career.
What We Do:
Our organization works with local schools to establish after school club chapters. Through each chapter, Girls in STEM facilitates after school roundtable discussions with STEM focused college students in addition to professional women in various STEM fields. Our team organizes and offers field trips, job shadowing opportunities, mentoring opportunities, networking and public speaking experiences with professional organizations in the Colorado area.
