Canceled
This project will save us $3,500, allowing us to inspire and serve 15 STEM Girls.

What We Need

  • Creation of a strategic plan for an online crowdfunding campaign
  • Step-by-step guidance throughout the implementation of the campaign
  • Evaluation at the end of the campaign to gauge effectiveness and guide strategy for future campaigns

How This Will Help

The success of our organization depends on funding from our supporters. Without your help, we cannot provide the STEM experience of a lifetime for girls. Your skills will empower us to engage current and new advocates of girls in STEM.

What We Have In Place

We currently have 2,200 emails, 1,500 twitter, 900 facebook, and more.. which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have great content all summer! 500 girls geeking out on science at our summer Academies and the ability to provide any other information you need.

Fun Fact

A dynamic team of wanna be scientists who exist to inspire the next generation of female STEM Superstars! Lazy, non-do-gooders, need not apply... we're on a mission!
