EMPOWERING GIRLS IN STEAM EDUCATION
Girls… They’re awesome problem solvers, creators, designers, and collaborators. So why is it that girls claimed only 19% of all bachelor’s degrees in engineering and 18% in computer science in 2014? It’s our mission to change these trends and empower girls to design, make, and create amazing projects in design and coding. Our project-based curriculum will put girls’ curiosity, creativity, and storytelling powers to the test!
Our goal is to inspire girls to use their confidence and unique skills to make big leaps in art and technology. We invite guest speakers to nurture girls’ natural ambition, and design curriculum to teach girls 21st century skills that will last a lifetime.
Check out our programs for more information on how we can help empower girls in your community.
Recent studies speak for itself
- 74% of teen girls are interested in STEM 1
- In 2013, just 12 percent of engineers and 26 percent of computing professionals were women 2
- Many science and engineering occupations are predicted to grow faster than the average rate for all occupations, and some of the largest increases will be in engineering and computer-related fields in which women currently hold one-quarter or fewer positions3
Girls STEAM Club
Our Girls STEAM Club tries to bring some balance to the world by exploring coding and engineering through projects in animation, robotics, 3D modeling, fashion, and design. Our female teachers will build the group’s confidence and knowledge with a new challenge each week, giving the group a taste of a wide variety of technologies. No prior experience is required.
Club meets every Sunday at 11:30am – 1:00pm in our Lexington Studio. Rolling admission; enroll any time.
Girl Scouts Workshops
We hold workshops to help girls scouts obtain badges in Digital Art, Science & Technology, and Innovation. Please inquire below and a team member will help you book a workshop in your community or at our Lexington Studio.
