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.

Nature meets art and STEM in fourth grade biomimicry project

The 2018 Princeton Environmental Film Festival, which took place at the Princeton Public Library from April 8-15, featured a photo exhibit from a recent STEM and art interdisciplinary project in the fourth grade. The girls have been learning about habitats and ecosystems by investigating the habitats surrounding our campus and studying the interactions of organisms in a food chain through various indoor and outdoor scientific inquiries. They also discussed the impact of human intervention and the ways in which our choices can affect the balance of nature.

Freshman dig into the science of gardening in week-long PBL symposium

Seven superb science students (Reyna Bae, Louisa Friedman, Hailey Hawes, Maddy Howard, Corinne Kadri, Jasmine Lewis, and Holly Zhuang) participated in the Science of Gardening Symposium from March 13 to March 16. The students were tasked with two projects: One was to create a plan to "beautify and dry" the chicken coop area, and the other was to design a rain garden for the area in front of the Raissa Maritain Library. In order to create design proposals that could work and be implemented by Stuart, the students participated in a variety of pertinent labs and activities.

MS students present research at SISP Expo

The SISP (Science Independent Study Project) was a trimester-long endeavor during which the Middle School students had a chance to answer a question of their own design by using the scientific method. Their work culminated with a display board, research paper/lab report and logbook, and was displayed at the SISP Expo on Monday, March 12 and evaluated by at least two judges on Tuesday, March 13.
