Girls Can Build
Historically, girls have strayed from many of the STEM fields of study and career options. Now, is the time for change! With STEM fields growing faster than any other industry, the gap can be filled with creative and passionate girls. Getting girls excited about these topics at a young age is the answer, and Girls Can Build is the key to change. By using easy-to-use building materials in addition to collaborative activities, Girls Can Build encourages girls to explore, experiment, communicate and problem-solve together.
