2023-2024 STEM For Girls: Empowering Girls and Gender-Expansive Youth in STEM

STEM for Girls invites 10-12 year-old girls and gender-expansive youth from the Woodland and Sacramento areas to the University of California, Davis for a free full day immersion into science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) facilitated through hands on workshops and interactive lab tours led by UC Davis graduate students and faculty.


Your gifts will support the STEM for Girls fund and its mission. Our team uses the fund to provide an engaging and empowering, free, full-day STEM immersion camp for 60+ youth, many of whom come from low-income families and school districts throughout Yolo and Sacramento counties. In addition, your gift will support the funding of supplies and materials for hands-on workshops and interactive lab tours, provide round-trip transportation for 50 students and their teachers and support ongoing training and development of Team Leaders. Any remaining funds from the STEM for Girls fund will be used to support in the expansion of the STEM for Girls program, build partnerships with new schools, and provide enhanced development opportunities for Team Leaders.


Your gift will ensure that STEM for Girls can continue to grow and serve our communities by providing a day full of science that opens minds and empowers youth! We ask for your support in giving generously what you can.  All donations are 100% tax-deductible.
