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.
