STEM education – the combined approaches of inquiry, project-based learning, integrated curriculum, and career awareness – prepares students for the future. Our searchable directory provides information about immersive, hands-on learning experiences, both in the classroom and outside of school, to support STEM learning.
The LAUNCH program transforms the natural curiosity of high school girls into a voice of leadership in the STEM industry. Through our comprehensive program, high school girls will gain insight into their leadership style and be equipped with the confidence to pursue a successful career path in STEM. LAUNCH integrates the Becoming Athena leadership curriculum with the Birkman method, interactive resume and portfolio development, and professional female mentors working in STEM. Through their engagement, our participants experience growth as leaders and exit the program prepared to create positive changes in their chosen career path.
