We are a non-profit organization with the goal of empowering young girls from low-income areas to feel confident and capable through hardware computing. At She STEMs, we believe that every girl should feel great in her own skin and want to help her explore career opportunities for her future. With the serious lack of representation for girls and resources for students with low-income backgrounds, we want to create greater accesibility and resources for everyone.
Specifically, we focus on hardware computing because the offer a range of opportunities for people in the real world, and students can get hands-on experiences with the materials such as Arduinos and Raspberry Pis. And there's really nothing quite like coding a robot for the first time!
