“Talent wins games, but
teamwork and intelligence
win championships”

– Michael Jordan

GIRLS 12-17

Our program is designed to develop positive attitudes toward S.T.E.A.M. among girls ages 12-17 and inspire them to see themselves as part of a larger picture, with unlimited potential to contribute transformational ideas that change the world.

Our goal is to encourage these girls to consider planning their futures in S.T.E.A.M. through entrepreneurship. Studies show the earlier these seeds are planted, the higher the probability girls will surround themselves with like-minded people who will help them achieve their goals.



STEAMers refer to girls who have completed the Challenge competition.
Many of the girls have chosen to become leaders of our organization by serving on the STEAMer Advisory Group. We consult with them to learn more about how we can continue to offer relevant and meaningful resources to young girls which supports their growth into newer areas.

We invite the parents of the STEAMer girls to participate in new programming designed to help enrich their lives as parents of highly motivated girls.

Some of the ways for parents to be involved is to help host or sponsor a Meet Up with small groups of girls in their areas. We welcome them to be interviewed on one of our podcasts, or serve as a panelist for one of our workshops.

Our three main program initiatives we like to call our Trifecta Opportunities to support young girls and entrepreneurship

The reason we refer to our programs as part of a Trifecta is you can support each initiative separately or you can support all three as a winning combination.

GSI offers the following main programs:

  •  Team Challenge- which has opportunities for Fall event at NASA
  • Online Learning Center
  • Podcast Series


There are so many ways you can get involved and know you are making a difference in the lives of young girls.

You can volunteer to help mentor a team of girls at a Team Challenge, or help host a MeetUp for a group of STEAMers in your community.

We welcome Education Advisors for our Online Learning Center or helping us host events, both large and small.

We recognize “It takes a Village” and we also know we can’t do this by ourselves. At this time in our society, we know that if we help young girls develop a pathway through STEAM, they will have some of the best tools in their toolbox.
