This year, Girl Up launched STEM for Social Good. The goal of STEM for Social Good is to inspire girls everywhere to use STEM skills to promote gender equality and change the world. When you participate in Girl Up’s STEM for Social Good programming, you’ll be joining together with a like-minded community of STEMinists who are passionate about creating innovative solutions to problems facing their community and our world. Here are some stories from girls that attended a STEM for Social Good event in Orlando, Florida:
