Kids’ Vision’s Mission
Empower 3rd to 6th grade girls by increasing their interest and knowledge of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art+Design and Math) and helping them to develop useful learning attitudes early in life before their beliefs in limited ability become engraved in their vision of themselves. Empower parents to help girls develop skills needed to do STEAM work.
Kids’ Vision addresses the main causes that keep most of our girls from pursuing STEAM related careers:
Lack of interest in STEAM
Absence of female role models working in STEAM related careers
Belief in limited ability
Kids’ Vision is a nonprofit organization, and we are unique in many ways:
-We develop our own activities with the participation of high tech employees. For example, our Math activities at Tesla Motors show girls how Tesla uses fractions, estimation, geometry, algebraic thinking, and data and measurement to protect the environment.
-We are a STEAM program. In the high tech industry Art/Design is tightly coupled with Science, Technology, Engineering and Math – the STEM subjects. We use design thinking to show girls how to solve problems.
-We work with an average of 40 high tech employees per program, who act as mentors and role models for our girls. Since our activities aim at showing how STEAM is applied to improve the life of people, the best people to facilitate those activities are the ones with experience applying STEAM in real life. We mentor our mentors.
-Kids’ Vision favors the participation of low income participants and girls who can benefit from our program regardless of their ethnicity or income. We ask teachers to participate in our selection process.
