Amazing Girl Science seeks to ignite girls’ interest and spark their enthusiasm in science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) while building core life skills of self-confidence, self-esteem, curiosity, problem solving and risk taking.We believe girls can enjoy science, technology, engineering and math. So, we design all our science conferences, summer camps and robotics programs to be interesting and fun.
Computing is where the jobs are — and where they will be in the future, but fewer than 1 in 5 computer science graduates are womenIn 1995, 37% of computer scientists were women. Today, it’s only 24%. If we do nothing, in ten years the number of women in computing will decrease to just 22%.Tech jobs are among the fastest growing in the country, yet girls are being left behind. While interest in computer science ebbs over time, the biggest drop off happens between the ages of 13-17
Just imagine a young girl who was provided with opportunities to explore STEAM topics one day creating programs to change the world. What problems might she solve? Who might she help or inspire? How might she give back? Although we can accomplish a great deal, we can’t do this without your help.
Here’s how you can help
Yep, we want to make the world a better place! And we’re betting you do, too. If you feel the desire to help us join the movement to increase the number of girls in STEAM (science, technology,engineering, art,math) careers, you can go here to make your tax-deductible donation directly to Saturday Academy’s Amazing Girls Science Program!
