Girls in STEM

Opening Doors: Girls in STEM

It’s no secret that women are underrepresented in several key STEM occupations. Girls growing up today often encounter females in healthcare professions, but are far less likely to interact with a female engineer or computer scientist.

KC STEM Alliance is intentionally working to change the numbers through education and career exploration. Activities include building mentoring relationships, supporting weekend workshops and summer camps, and opening doors to STEM opportunities in Kansas City.
