The program is highly flexible, allowing coaches to select from among the 48 curated activities and hold the program before, after, or during in-school time.
Our programming is focused on providing meaningful impact and connections for the girls participating in our StellarGirls program Student content gains are evaluated with pre-and post-program unit evaluations to ensure we are meeting our stated objectives:
Did girls involved with the program increase their understanding of STEM concepts?
Did girls involved with the program become more interested in STEM subjects?
After being involved in the program for three years, I have seen firsthand how advantageous the program is for young women trying to further their knowledge and love of STEM. Young girls are able to sit in a classroom surrounded by other women and experiment to their hearts desire. The limitless ideas and ways to do just one activity instills that there is always more than one way to accomplish something and trying is the only way to see if it really works.
StellarGirls programming is focused on low-income and under-represented communities.
School-level data from 2012-2018 show that 69% of girls are underrepresented minority and 66% of participants are from low-income homes that qualify for free and reduced lunch at school.
We work closely with schools and community organizations to successfully implement StellarGirls after school programs and our STEMGirls Summer camps. Contact us to learn how to bring our programs to your district.
Our programs would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors.
