Helping Kentucky Girls Discover STEM Careers

Although we have made strides in some areas, girls are not succeeding at high enough numbers in careers such as computer science, engineering and physics. Kentucky and the United States will not have enough workers to fill science and engineering jobs if girls are not prepared to succeed in STEM careers.

 

The Kentucky Girls STEM Collaborative Project supports STEM programs, activities, and events all designed to provide high-quality educational opportunities for girls across the commonwealth. Our mission is to inform and motivate girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics to build a strong, diverse workforce in Kentucky.
