STEM for Her provides critical funding for programs that foster STEM interests in girls and young women through the sponsorship of field trips, speakers, programs and curriculum development, and contributes program resources for clubs and after school groups in the D.C. Metropolitan area. These programs enable girls to explore STEM topics they might not otherwise have an opportunity to discover.
STEM for Her financial support has helped thousands of girls and women in the metropolitan D.C. area learn about the exciting opportunities available to them in STEM-related careers. Each year, STEM for Her seeks to significantly expand outreach to underprivileged and underserved girls. Staffed 100 percent by volunteers, STEM for Her is committed to helping more young women across the greater Washington, D.C. region consider and thrive on STEM-related paths. Further funding will help STEM for Her broaden the programs we support, including more hands-on exposure to the four STEM components – Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics – across all demographics in our region.
