Let’s give girls experiences to believe STEM is for them!

Why Kids’ Vision?

Kids’ Vision is a powerful booster that helps girls develop confidence, interest and knowledge in STEM, and the motivation to work hard at school.  

 

Many parents want to help their kids do well at school, but few know how. That is why we offer parents workshops were they acquire the tools to role model a growth mindset to their children, so they can embrace the challenge of preparing for college.

 

To nurture what girls and parents accomplished at our programs,           we partner with schools, and other nonprofits to offer girls daily homework support, leadership skills and workshops to help the       family prepare for college.

 

 

 

By the time the average girl starts middle school she has a heavy bag of stereotypes, negative experiences and beliefs regarding Math. That is why we serve girls in 3rd to 5th grade, before their beliefs in limited ability become engraved in their vision of themselves. It is difficult for a girl to be interested in something she believes is just for men or something she doesn’t know exists. Low income girls have limited access to role models of women in STEM. That is why we train high tech employees to work with these girls to bring about change.
