Have you heard of Girlstart?
Girlstart is an organization with a mission to empower girls in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).
Girlstart’s core programs foster STEM skills development, an understanding of the importance of STEM as a way to solve the world’s major problems, as well as an interest in STEM electives, majors, and careers.
A recent study found that Girlstart’s After School program is the most robust STEM program for girls in the country!
Their DeSTEMBer initiative provides 31 days of STEM-based activities.
Wonderopolis is included in one of those days!
Here is the google hangout Girlstart and Wonderopolis did recently:

We will have to see what happens!
