Tech Savvy: Preparing Girls for the Future with STEM

“If we’re going to out-innovate and out-educate the rest of the world, we’ve got to open doors for everyone. We need all hands on deck, and that means clearing hurdles for women and girls as they navigate careers in (STEM) science, technology, engineering, and math.”


                                                                                - First Lady Michelle Obama

Today's girls at risk of losing out on tomorrow's opportunities. Find out why there's still a gender gap in STEM -- Science, Technology, Engineering and Math -- and how you can give your kids the skills they need to succeed. For anyone interested in youth development.
