Connect girls with science, technology, engineering and math learning with Girls In STEM initiative
There are more than 30,000 vacant jobs in healthcare, advanced manufacturing, technology, and engineering in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. Greater Cincinnati STEM Collaborative (GCSC) prepares students to join our region’s workforce through connected, robust science, technology, engineering, and math learning.
These jobs solve problems, help people, and make our region a vibrant and dynamic place to live and work. Encouraging and supporting girls to enter the workforce in these jobs will increase their economic self-sufficiency.
GCSC has been leading the region’s Girls in STEM initiative since 2015 to increase girls’ participation in high-quality, hands-on STEM learning, increase girls’ interest in STEM education and high-paying STEM careers, and engage more STEM professional women as mentors and role models.
GCSC has partnered with more than 70 schools and school districts across Greater Cincinnati, as well as volunteers from Procter & Gamble, GE, Duke Energy, Girl Scouts, and more to serve girls, especially those that are diverse and low income, during summer and after school. Girls will engage in fun STEM learning and be exposed to high-paying, high-demand career possibilities.
With your support, students on waiting lists for 2018 3D Printers and STEM Bicycle Clubs will be able to participate in the program.
How can you help?
Give a grant for $210 so one grade-school or high school girl can participate in STEM learning for a spring semester.
