About STEM Girls program
As more careers utilize STEM (Free Cincinnati STEM Girls programsscience, technology, engineering and mathematics) skills, getting children interested early is critical for future success. This is especially important for young girls. Recent studies have shown that fewer than 30 percent of the STEM workforce in the United States are women. Among the many reasons for the shortage are gender biases and the lack of women role models in those fields. STEM Girls connects elementary and middle school girls with STEM content in an engaging way that makes them eager to learn more. It also introduces them to biologists, chemists, nutritionists, data analysts, geologists and more, showing them that STEM fields really are for everyone.

 

STEM Girls features programs at Union Terminal and in the community, where participants go directly to the labs, facilities and workplaces of partners actively working in STEM fields. This spring, STEM Girls will work with the University of Cincinnati Department of Engineering, Northern Kentucky University Department of Anthropology and Microsoft.

 

All STEM Girls programs are free and open to both girls and boys interested in STEM, but space is limited and registration is required. For a full list of programs or to register, visit cincymuseum.org/stem-girls. You can also register by phone by calling (513) 287-7001.
