Inspiring girls to think, create, discover and lead!
At GPS, we want to deter girls from seeing science as a “boy thing.” The National Center for Education Statistics reports that over 41% of girls say they don’t like science while 70% of boys that say they do. By middle school, girls experience the “leaky STEM pipeline” as they are exposed to the fact that women are underrepresented in STEM fields.
This follows girls as they get older and according to the NSF, young women pursuing their undergraduate degrees are not choosing science or engineering. As a result, there are few women scientists and engineers, and a workforce that lacks diversity.
Let’s reinvent how we deliver science education by making it appealing and teach girls how to think, not what to think.
THE GPS TRIFECTA:
- Start Early
- Make it Relevant
START A STEAM STUDIO
If you are interested in learning more, please complete our studio request form for additional information about starting a GPS STEAM Club. Once your request is approved, we will walk you through the steps to complete the formal application process.
The cost to implement a studio is only $450.00. This includes the BOS Curriculum Kit to serve 15 girls. If you have a larger club or group, please indicate that on the request form. If you have any questions about starting a club or implementing a one day workshop or summer camp in your area, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
I will submit my GPS STEAM Studio request form today.
We need more information before we can start a GPS Studio.
