STEM Girl Power

Girls Love To Learn

Now is the time to empower girls to embrace a love of STEM and to seek their future careers. As a nation, we need to stay competitive in the global market. By encouraging girls in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math we can help them achieve their dreams.

Companies Encouraging Girls For The Future

To help bridge the gender gap in the STEM fields, a number of United States companies like Microsoft have started campaigns to support girls in science-related fields. Microsoft offers a variety of free resources like internships, media lists, and educational opportunities to help connect girls at an early age. The Department of Energy has made it a priority to encourage and retain girls and young women who are interested in working in engineering. They have created mentoring networks, employee spotlights, and partnerships as they lead the way in keeping girls involved in technology.

Join Girls Coding Camp

The Discovery Center of Idaho actively supports girls by offering an All Girls Coding Camp during the summer. By offering a girls-only class, coders can focus on learning the foundation of coding in a non-competitive environment. Campers will gain useful experience in coding while being supported by a knowledgeable staff that wants to see them succeed. Empower girls by showing them how successful they can be by learning to code in a relaxed and fun place.

Girls Are The Future

Whether your girl wants to build bridges, find a cure for cancer, or solve the problem of time travel, the Discovery Center of Idaho is there to give her the tools to achieve that dream. Girls can bring their best game to the table as they tackle tough problems in the world of science and technology. By supporting the Discovery Center of Idaho and encouraging girls to participate in problem-solving activities, you will be promoting a better tomorrow.

 

The Discovery Center of Idaho has been helping young minds to foster a love of science since 1988. Located in Boise, kids and adults of all ages can let their imaginations run wild as they learn about science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). The Discovery Center of Idaho offers an inclusive environment that promotes hands-on learning at all levels of interest.
