  • We are celebrating the contributions, both past and future, women and girls provide to the science world with a fun-filled day of activities that everyone can participate in.

    A gender-inclusive STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) culture will benefit from more brains working out the problems of the future. By inspiring confidence, introducing role models, and talking about discrimination, we can help our bright, curious girls realize their potential in STEM fields!

    International Day of Women and Girls in Science was adopted by the UN General Assembly to promote full and equal access for the participation of women and girls in science.
