How our donors are changing the world
Encouraging STEM uptake in young girls
Studies show that from as early as age one, girls receive less informal science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education than boys.
To help address this problem, Macquarie University’s Pocket Rockets program has developed STEM workshops for girls between the ages of four and six, and their parents. The aim is to promote interest in the disciplines among girls who are just about to enter formal schooling.
