Jr.Tech Girls STEM Summit-Statewide

High school girls are craving more connection with STEM minded peers and seeking knowledge about STEM career paths. Girls STEM Summit reinforces and enhances girls’ passion for STEM. We believe in exposure — exposure to career path ideas, exposure to hands-on learning experiences, exposure to female role models, and exposure to the personal benefits of earning a STEM degree. We want girls to pursue their passions and fall in love with the possibilities of STEM careers.

What is Girls STEM Summit-Statewide?

  • A full day STEM Summit for 8th – 12th grade girls
  • For girls interested in pursuing STEM career paths
  • Features female STEM professionals and educators
  • Highlights emerging and existing STEM careers

What Happens at Girls STEM Summit-Statewide?

Girls will:

  • Meet female STEM experts
  • Attend hands-on and stimulating career track breakout sessions
  • Interact with other girls with similar interests
  • Hear an inspirational keynote speech by a woman leader in a STEM field
  • Be exposed to STEM industries and career options

Girls STEM Summit-Statewide Goals:

  • Impact and bridge the gap between girls’ passion for the topics and helping them find their way to successful STEM careers.
  • Inspire girls to pursue STEM fields.
  • Fill an important gender gap in STEM jobs today and into the future.
  • Present topics and learning sessions in a way that makes STEM topics interesting, relevant to career paths, and approachable.
  • Provide hands-on career sessions highlighting a variety of STEM industries.

Girls hear personal stories from female professionals working in STEM fields. Many of the hands-on career sessions showcase STEM industries and intersections between hobbies/passions and STEM career paths. Jr.Tech focuses on all grades with both its workshops and summits helping to engage young girls to pursue their interests in STEM. We bring together many female professionals eager to play their part and give back their knowledge to the next generation of female workers.  

Jr.Tech developed the premier statewide Girls STEM Summit-Statewide to meet these needs. Jr.Tech has proudly hosted ten STEM Summits and looks forward to inspiring our future generation of STEM experts and global leaders with future summits.
