STEM-sational Resources for Girls

The tech industry is booming in the San Francisco Bay Area but women are still woefully underrepresented in tech jobs. But the future is looking bright! 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.

Girls who love building with LEGO® bricks will love Play-Well Teknologies Girl Powered classes. Taught by women engineers and scientists, girls ages 5-6 (pre-engineering) and 7-11 (engineering) build engineer-designed projects such as boats, bridges, mazes and motorized cars.  The program is the same that’s offered for the other Play-Well programs, it’s just girls-only.
