How Young Women Succeed in STEM

Girls Pursuing Science objective is to build creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration skills in girls ages 8 plus. These “4C’s” have become the basic skills that describe exactly the nature, scope, and  meaning  of STEM that creates leaders, innovators, and problem solvers of the 21st century.

 

Girls Pursuing Science engage, educate, and empower girls with real world science that is relevant to their lifestyle. Cosmetics, chemistry, coding, building, making, creating, budging, and money matters combined is our combination to engaging the “other” 75% of girls who mature as young women that do not pursue STEM degrees,  represents less that 2% of the STEM workforce,  and earns less than their male colleague

Oh how powerful it is to divert from traditional science and math education,  and build STEM skills with project based  lessons in cosmetic chemistry and business development.

 

Comprehensive and complete. STEM and  STEAM content includes research activities,  software applications, engineering, digital art,  and applied mathematics. The Girls Pursuing  Science curriculum is based on Common Core and Next Generation  Science Standards.

 

Engaging and Empowering  Girls in STEM

 

Girls Pursuing Science guides girls through the science, math, and formulations of cosmetics, and includes beauty formulations to make their own personalized bath and body products using all five STEAM academic  concepts. Girls also learn business development concepts that inspire creativity. Our students explore small business basics, such as budgeting, planning, and marketing, and developing skill sets to make sound decisions.

 

Although Girls Pursuing Science programs are packed with excitement, each experiment is a real science experiment guaranteed to engage girls in STEM and STEAM academics.

 

Girls become engaged in scientific inquiry, building their analytical skills, creative thinking, and reasoning abilities. The experiments are simple, but real. Each lesson is written the way real scientists actually perform experiments in the laboratory.

 

Engage. Educate. Enjoy. That’s the beauty of science®.
