Visit Opportunities


Building a community that encourages and supports females interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) is a vital part of our mission. We focus on building that community in outreach programs when girls are still in high school. It's important to grow those skills and surround yourself with both peers and mentors to enhance your interest and knowledge. These programs provide hands-on learning experiences plus peer engagement resulting in a more successful STEM academic career.
