WHY STEM & GIRLS? A recent study* found that 72% of girls polled said it was important for them to have jobs that will improve the world, but only 37% understood that STEM could lead to a career that focuses on solving our world’s biggest challenges. With this in mind, we feel that giving all girls no matter their socio-economic status with the right tools will CHANGE our WORLD for the Better!
