STEM for Girls invites 10 - 12 year old girls from the Woodland and Sacramento areas to the University of California, Davis for a full day immersion into science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Our goals are to expose students to STEM fields, build confidence in their abilities to participate in STEM, and introduce them to relatable and accessible STEM role models. 2020 will be our 10th annual STEM for Girls and we cannot wait to introduce more students to the exciting and empowering world of STEM!
We aim to increase interest in STEM, build a sense of belonging in STEM, connect underrepresented minorities with STEM role models, and more. Each year, we measure our impacts. This allows us to objectively analyze our progress, evaluate which areas need improved, and, when results are positive, advocate for our organization. We are incredibly proud of the impacts we have made on our visiting students and volunteers
Team Leaders: You will lead groups of 10 girls with a partner to the different workshops, lab tours, demonstrations and answer any questions the girls may have. Team leaders must pass a background check and participate in a mandatory in-person and online training prior to the date of the event. The application for this position is open now until March 15th.
Volunteers: Are needed to help make this event happen! Volunteers have the opportunity to help with registration, clean-up, set-up, and other logistics.
