Girls Inc. of Worcester received support for its STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) programs:

  • Eureka! (grades 8-12)
  • Operation SMART (grades K-6)
  • Summer STEM (grades 7-12)
  • Thinking SMART (grades 7-8)

In fiscal year 2015/2016, STEM grants/stipends were received from the following funders:  

With the financial support from these corporations, foundations, and higher education partners, Girls Inc. of Worcester will continue to offer young women in greater Worcester the opportunity to learn and grow in the field of STEM. For girls, building self-assurance in their abilities in STEM areas early in their education is key, as is ongoing reinforcement throughout high school.
