About Us

STEM Access For Girls provides a STEM-based curriculum that includes digital literacy, emotional intelligence, writing, and creativity to young women who are 9-20 years old in developing communities.

 Understanding the fundamentals of STEM is important to ensure young women are equipped with the necessary knowledge to meet the expectations of high-demand jobs. Engaging the girls through hands-on workshops helps to develop 21st -Century skills which sparks a forward-thinking mindset.

The girls acquire skills by engaging in the following process: learn background information, apply the information in a controlled setting, analyze the experience, evaluate their learning, create something that applies the content to their personal setting, and close with a reflection on the whole experience. Throughout each learning process cycle, the girls also sharpen their emotional intelligence through intentional guided activities. 

We can and we will empower the next generation!
