Mission Statement

Our mission is to increase girls' and young women's interest and achievement in math, science, and technology.

Description

SMARTgirls focuses on inspiring young girls with science, math, and technology through two programs. Our one day conference, Expanding Your Horizons, allows the girls to learn about various careers through workshops held once a year. In the workshops, girls participate in hands-on learning experiences led by women scientists, mathematicians, engineers, and technologists. Our Site Visit Program allows girls to continue their exploration of science, math, and technology throughout the year by visiting Seattle-area businesses and research institutions to learn about science, math, and technology in the "real world". Each site visit has an activity that the girls participate in to learn more about a given industry.
