What is the Power to the Girls STEM Program? It is an initiative started in 2017 by B4 Networks to push past the barriers that women in technology face. Statistics prove that introducing technology at a young age helps create the critical thinking and ideas that help motivate girls to explore their passion for the study of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. In an effort to encourage the change we want to see in the world, we have hosted and funded free programming now several times and want to continue to do even bigger things in the future. Our first program was on Robotics, and then the second on Coding with a follow up on building computers and we had girls as young as 5 & 6 participate. It has been wonderful to watch as the girls who have participated in our activities have already taken the little bit that we taught them on that day home and developed passions already.
