YWCA of Greater Pittsburgh
STEM Stars
Provides reading help; math and science remediation and enrichment; hands-on project-based STEM activities; life skills development; mentoring; pre-college experiences; and STEM career exploration. The purpose of STEM Stars is to improve academic achievement and increase interest in, and awareness of, STEM topics and careers among economically disadvantaged girls; and decrease opportunity gaps that negatively impact these girl's successful matriculation through the STEM education pipeline and into STEM careers. STEM Stars addresses barriers associated with middle school girl's engagement in STEM: inadequate access, opportunity, academic preparation, and attitudinal barriers that limit success and persistence in STEM.
