CarnegieSTEMgirls.org is a comprehensive site with activities, resources, and links designed to get teenagers excited about STEM – science, technology, engineering, and math. There are areas for students, teachers, and parents. Visitors can read about cool careers, learn about STEM programs and competitions, and link to a variety of other sites that help to provide a rich learning experience.
Despite comprising half of the overall workforce, women hold only 25% of science and technology-related jobs in America’s public and private sectors. We need to change that. There are so many careers that women can pursue in science, technology, engineering, and math! We want girls to recognize that STEM topics and careers are pretty cool – maybe even cool enough to be part of their future plans. To help them envision these possibilities, the Carnegie STEM Girls Programs offer after school opportunities, the Tour Your Future program, special events, and the comprehensive CarnegieSTEMgirls.org website!
