Kids’ Vision’s Mission
We aim to provide girls in 3rd to 6th grade the skills and knowledge that will help them to deal with the gender filters that keeps them from STEM. We aim at helping girls: a) adopt a growth mindset early in life before their beliefs in limited ability become engraved in their vision of themselves; b) meet role models and learn what STEM jobs women are doing and what STEM careers they are studing; c) learn how the STEM they are learning at school is being used to do high tech products and how those products are making a difference in people’s life; d) empower parents to help girls develop skills needed to do STEM work.
Kids’ Vision shares with girls the skills and knowledge that can booster their academically performance, interest and inspiration in STEM. The girl in the left of the image represents a girl who has been in our program. The girl in the right represents many of our participants before they start our program.
Home is the place where girls spend most of their time after school. During our program girls receive a powerful positive booster about their vision of their own STEM abilities, and what they could do in the future with those abilities. Kids’ Vision show parents how to nurture those powerful seeds planted during the program. How to continue to develop growth mindsets, which are crucial to high academic performance and STEM work, and how to keep stimulating their daughters with STEM activities to show them that STEM is for them too. Here below an image of before and after parents participate in our program, with examples of some of the tools they lack and are able to acquire when joining Kids’ Vision.
