STEM Next just kicked off the Million Girls Moonshot in an effort to engage girls in STEM!
According to the organization’s website, they are looking to prepare and inspire the next generation of innovators “by engaging one million more girls in STEM learning opportunities.” This initiative will take place through summer and afterschool programs over the next five years.
Per Twitter, STEM Next will be joined by NASA, Mott Foundation, If/Then, and Intel to make this all come to life.

The Moonshot has plans to be active in out-of-school programs in all 50 states and will leverage the Mott-funded 50 State Afterschool Network to reach over 10 million youth and 100,000 afterschool programs across the U.S.
“Let’s reimagine who can be an engineer; who can build; who can make. Let’s reimagine the future,” reads the organization’s website.
We are so excited to see all that they do in this exciting new program. For more information on how you can get the girls in your life signed up, visit their website here.
