There are tons of organizations that have taken up this cause and are working to bring STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) programs just to girls. By getting girls of all ages excited about coding, technology and science in general, the hope is that will lead to careers in these areas. Read on to find out what girls-only programs are available in your area.
