LadyBoss: Getting Girls Involved In Stem

Breaking barriers to girls' engagement in STEM.  Don’t let anyone tell you that girls can’t study math, science, and technology. Girls can solve math problems, create apps, and invent new technology just as well as anyone else. If more girls study STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering, and math) and choose career-prep programs for STEM fields, there will be more young women studying STEM majors in universities. That will trickle into STEM careers, increasing the number of women in these fields, normalizing and celebrating the role of women in STEM industries.
