HerRise STEM Squad

HerRise STEM Squad is a gender-specific program designed to encourage high-school girls to apply science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) concepts and skills through hands-on, inquiry-based learning.

HerRise STEM Squad aims to provide students with an opportunity to explore STEM topics through collaboration with other girls who share similar interests. Students will learn how these topics impact their everyday lives while developing confidence in their own self-worth as they apply what they’ve learned in a real-world setting.

HerRise STEM Squad is a College and Career Enrichment program offering monthly spring and fall activities and a 3-week summer STEM curriculum as part of an intensive, multi-session program intended to build upon college and career exploration for young girls.

The program meets the needs of diverse learners and ultimately addresses the under-representation of women in STEM fields.

Students selected for the summer program earn a wage while learning about careers in STEM, financial literacy and soft skills. Students are selected through an application process.

We believe this rigorous program will have a major impact in:

  • Positively preparing students in there communities for careers of the future
  • Leveling the playing field for girls of color
  • Expanding girls ideas, career choices, and interests related to STEM
