Why Girls in STEM?

Though girls surpass boys in nearly every measure of academic success, there is still a significant
gender gap in the number of women pursuing college degrees and careers in STEM fields.

Less than one-quarter of STEM jobs are held by women
(though women make up nearly half of the overall workforce).

STEM jobs pay significantly more than non-STEM jobs.

Job growth in STEM is projected to be nearly 3x that of non-STEM.

A box is not a box: Cardboard Challenge showcases creativity of Lower School engineers

On Monday, November 5, girls in junior kindergarten through grade 4 were joined by the EC4 class for the 7th annual Cardboard Challenge in the Lower School. This is a long-awaited event for the Lower School students, and the girls couldn't wait to showcase the arcade games of their own creation. After brainstorming ideas and sketching plans with their partners, they worked in groups to apply imagination, creativity and engineering design skills to make an arcade game out of cardboard and recycled materials. For this full day of play, we invited guests from Hamilton Grove Senior Center and Visitation Home for Adults with Disabilities to have some fun.
