GIRLS IN STEM INITIATIVE

This year Confidence is proud to announce its Girls in STEM Initiative collaboration with the WNBA Dallas Wings, Microsoft, Dallas ISD, Toyota and other corporations to help provide girls 3rd-8th grade with an opportunity to engage in hands-on STEM projects to encourage and inspire them to pursue careers in STEM, promote social and emotional development, and to develop productive citizens for the community.

“ It is so important that young girls see and interact with doctors, scientists, athletes, engineers, and other professionals who can inspire them to reach their greatest potential, “said Confidence Chief Operation Officer Raven Barnes.

 

WNBA Dallas Wings and Confidence will create age-appropriate content in science, technology, engineering and math experiences. This collaboration will give girls access to hands-on information and training in various game design, coding, build your world classes, robotics and more. Girls will learn key concepts of computer science, character development, and complete activities through which they problem solve with friends while building essential leadership skills. They will also have the opportunity to apply what they learn at Dallas Wings halftime game show.

 

According to The Case for Improving U.S. Computer Science Education report, only 22 percent of students who take the Advanced Placement (AP) Computer Science exam are female, the largest gender diversity gap of any AP exam. The report also shows that females who try AP Computer Science in high school are 10x more likely to major in it in college. A large part of the decreased interest is because girls aren’t exposed to STEM in ways that speak to them and inspire their career ambition.
