Project Description

Florida State University researchers did a deep dive to find real reasons to why fewer girls pursue careers in STEM than boys. According to their findings, girls’ poor confidence levels hold them back from climbing up the math and science career ladder. The movement to increase the female presence in the industry is so inspiring. Women are more than capable of excelling in math and science with the right support. According to recent Georgia Milestone scores, there is a need in our community to increase the Math and Science skills among girls in our community. In the 5 targeted schools, less than 40% of girls are meeting and exceeding the GMAS in Math & Science. 

The project is to build a Math and Science Center for Girls called, The Girlz Place. The Girlz Place will offer an After School Program designed to increase Math and Science achievement in girls, while improving character development, decreasing destructive behaviors and increasing self-esteem. The After School Program will meet the needs of the target population by operating from Monday-Friday from 2:30 pm-6:30 pm. Scholars will receive homework assistance, Explicit Math and Science Instruction and Social Butterflies Mentoring Program workshops for character development.  Certified teachers or field experts will deliver instruction and workshops.
