Let's Celebrate Women's

History Month Together! 

Did you know that women only make up 28% of the STEM workforce? That number just doesn't cut it for #teamsquareroot! It's important that girls are introduced to STEM subjects and role models early in their education so that they can be empowered to pursue STEM.

 

So, for the month of March we'll be focusing on highlighting the amazing women in STEM that make up that 28%!  Be sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook to see the women in history and current STEM influencers that are inspiring us. Help us continue to share the FUN-damentals of STEM with girls by donating to #teamsquareroot here.

 

We're looking forward to a STEM-tastic women's history month!
