Girls in STEM Overview

A Guide to Bridging the Gender Gap

Historically, women have been systematically excluded from higher education. Although we’ve made great progress in opening education to women in recent decades, there is still a great deal of work that remains to be done. This is especially true in the STEM fields, which see a great imbalance of male to female students compared to other college degree programs.

STEM For Women Magazine

The STEM for Women magazine strives to encourage and support every effort to engage girls in STEM. It presents the world’s finest authors, many of whom are professional women in STEM careers, to inform & inspire. Gender is not a factor in innovation & inspiration.

Girls Who Code Clubs

The STEM Action Center has partnered with Girls Who Code to change the future of female coding. Girls Who Code is on a mission to close the gender gap in technology and to change the image of what a programmer looks like and does. Schools across the state can create afterschool clubs to provide girls (and boys) free computer science opportunities and a community of STEM-sisterhood.
