At Project Scientist we're fostering today's scientists who will lead the world in solving tomorrow's greatest challenges!
Our promise is to educate, coach, and advocate for girls and women with an aptitude, talent, and passion for STEM. Through engagement of top STEM companies, universities, teachers and hands on curriculum our girls discover the endless opportunities available to them in STEM.
The need for Project Scientist was based off a vast amount of research that shows girls with a high skill, aptitude, and talent for STEM subjects are not currently served or identified at a young age. Underserved and unidentified girls are not provided STEM opportunities at a pace, depth, and breadth commensurate with their talents and interests. We created Project Scientist to change the world’s view of “who” a scientist is and “what” a scientist does. The vision of Project Scientist is to transform the face of STEM by nurturing today’s future scientists who will lead the world in solving tomorrow's greatest challenges!
Every second of a girl's time with Project Scientist is intentional and based off of the latest research of what drives and sustains girl's interest in STEM. We diligently set goals and track the outcomes, outcomes that research has proven to affect girls with an interest in STEM. We annually partner with Harvard and the University of North Carolina Charlotte to research our model and validate our impact.
We know that 78% of school-aged girls have an interest in STEM, yet women only make up 25% of the STEM workforce, and that somewhere along the lines we are losing these STEM girls. We are determined to reach STEM girls and hold their hand through PhD or as long as far as their STEM dreams take them. Finally highlighting our girls through public relations and marketing efforts, our hope is to overall change society's perception of girl's interest and aptitude in STEM, in the end helping all girls.
