This One's for the Girls.

WE IGNITE GIRL POWER.

We appeal to girls in grades three through eight, inspiring them to think about “Big Ideas” in STEM fields. Through weekly after-school program activities and STEM education summer camps, students explore how STEM is used to feed, fuel, heal and save the world.

WHY STEM?

STEM education helps students develop creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, investigative and problem-solving skills. Women are often underrepresented in STEM, so Stellar Girls™ will help prepare students for careers and work environments that demand these disciplines.

WHY WE'RE STELLAR!

The Stellar Girls program introduces girls to “Big Ideas” in STEM and provides related training for teachers. Through fun, hands-on experiments, Stellar Girls helps build student awareness of exciting careers in science-based industries. Through laboratory discovery, Stellar Girls explores the effects of enzymes, dissecting fruits and vegetables, and more.
