Teamwork and hands on experience inspire girls to pursue STEM subjects


Women today are earning more degrees in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) thanks in part to early education programs promoting STEM careers. I visited a week-long science camp called GE Girls, which give middle school students from Waukesha schools hands-on curriculum focusing on medical technologies, physiology and biomedical engineering.


A partnership between the Milwaukee School of Engineering and the GE Women's Network at Wisconsin based campuses of GE, this program offers girls a chance to work together and discover interesting opportunities for STEM-related careers.
