MakerGirl - Creating Confidence in the Next Generation of Engineers

I started working for MakerGirl a nonprofit organization based in Champaign, Illinois, this year as a senior majoring in Industrial Engineering at the University of Illinois. MakerGirl’s vision is to inspire young girls to pursue careers in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math). The organization hosts workshops that teach girls ages 7-10 about various topics, basic modeling software, and 3D printing technology.

Girls CAN Be Shark Scientists

Girls CAN Be Shark Scientists

Talking with girls and engaging with the females who were working in shark research had myself and several others thinking about how these young girls should be able to learn from the female scientists.

There are always girls and boys in the non-pink aisles. But observational data to the contrary about the pink aisle is weak. I’m struggling with all four kids to get them to see beyond pink - which brings me to the worst offender of all...
