Our approach
Engage young women through hands-on instruction in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) while developing their leadership and communication skills. This program is open to qualified high school girls and boys.

In June 2016, 25 high school girls spent five days in San Francisco learning about computer science, Python programming, leadership skills, and the value of a professional network.

ABOUT THE INITIATIVE

Developed by Columbia University’s School of Professional Studies with support from corporate partners and community organizations, the Columbia Girls in STEM Initiative helps bridge the gender gap in science, technology, engineering, and math education. It prepares young women from underrepresented populations to enter college and the workplace with increased confidence and capability.
