SciGirls is a weekly television series and educational outreach program for elementary and middle-school children based on proven best practices for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education for girls. Launched in February 2011 and produced by Twin Cities Public Television, the episodes are broadcast on most PBS stations. SciGirls is designed to encourage girls to pursue STEM careers, in response to the low numbers of women in many scientific careers.
The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) is a non-profit educational and service organization that gives women the tools they need to succeed and advance in the field of engineering, and to be recognized for their contributions as engineers and leaders. SWE provides an array of training and development programs, networking opportunities, scholarships, and outreach and advocacy activities that help make engineering a desirable career choice for women.
