Join us to explore and learn how girls and women use Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) to make a positive impact in the world, and how you can too! You are invited to apply for a 5-day learning experience for underrepresented girls of color to learn, lead, & build a future that you want to see.

In this program, you’ll get to explore app development, robotics, marine science, botany, space, computer science, and more! Girls will work together engaging with experts in STEM fields, learning new tech tools and skills, and collaborating on projects. Drawing on the nationally recognized CompuGirls’ curriculum, 30 girls (ages 13-18) from throughout Hawaiʻi will advance their abilities to problem-solve and manipulate technology as a tool to create opportunities that support our communities’ environmental, educational, social, health, and cultural well-being. 

This in-person program will be hosted at Hawaii Pacific University - Hawaii Loa Campus, where students will stay in student housing on campus during the program. The program is lead by faculty from Hawaii Pacific University & Arizona State University’s Center for Gender Equity in Science and Technology with guest experts and graduate student mentors from a variety of STEM disciplines.
