Here are a list of STEM Opportunities specifically for girls and women.
GiST: Girls in STEM at Tulane: Tulane University’s GiST Program provides fifth through seventh-grade girls with the opportunity to meet and work with women role models in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields.
SeaPerch: SeaPerch is an innovative underwater robotics program that equips teachers and students with the resources they need to build an underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) in an in-school or out-of-school setting.
The Perry Initiative: The Perry Initiative, a non-profit founded in 2009, encourages high school girls to enter the female-deficient fields of engineering and orthopedics by providing hands-on workshops (such as fixing fractured bones using internal rods) interspersed with presentations from medical professionals and engineering faculty. The Perry Initiative partners with medical centers, universities, and high schools to host Perry Outreach Programs for young women in high school. These day-long programs are held at over 30 locations nationwide throughout the year. Participants perform mock orthopedic surgeries and con+duct biomechanical engineering experiments, while also hearing from prominent women engineers and surgeons in the field. Perry Initiative Medical Student Outreach Programs are hosted by medical schools and connect students to orthopedic surgeon mentors and like-minded peers, as well as introduce fracture fixation techniques and power tools. Orthopaedics In Action (OIA) is unique, hands-on curriculum for middle and high school STEM classrooms that features real-world challenges from orthopaedic surgery and biomedical engineering. We developed this curriculum in response to the overwhelming requests from our educator partners for Perry Outreach Program-themed curriculum that they can use directly in their classrooms. We heard you loud and clear, and we think you’ll love OIA! OIA is designed specifically to bridge the gap between bioscience and engineering coursework and reinforce cross-cutting concepts in math and science.
