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.

Space Cookies Robotics Team
Selling cookies is not the only talent that Girls Scouts have. The Space Cookies Robotics team is a partnership between NASA Ames Research Center and the Girl Scouts of Northern California that brings robotics to high school girls all over the Bay Area. Members participate in hands-on engineering, mechanical design, fabrication, electronics, programming, team leadership, marketing, graphic design, community outreach and FUN! They also run badge-earning workshops for Girl Scout troops throughout the school year.
