Girls are natural-born scientists, mathematicians, and engineers, but societal gender roles -- overt and subliminal, can undermine their confidence and discourage them from pursuing an education and future in science and technology. Using peer real-life experiences, “Girls Build the Future” gives girls awareness and knowledge to help them pursue their interests in science and technology through high school and beyond.
Girls Build the Future is an effective mentoring program that can be used in the classroom to build confidence and skills which will support students as they pursue their scientific passions and add their talents and insights to various fields.
