In addition to bolstering a girl's confidence to explore science and math, these girls-only programs strive to highlight the range and variety of STEM careers with a female's perspective in mind. Considering the projections of sustained job growth in STEM, young women will want to carefully investigate this well paid and stable career field.

To give your own daughter some insight, why not suggest a STEM program for her this summer? It's a great time for self-development and academic enrichment; and a new town could be part of the experience as well.
