Two summers ago, our agents started the STEM CAD-ettes, a group open to all middle/high school girls in our community who are interested in STEM. STEM CAD-ettes aims to increase retention of girls interested in STEM from FLL-FTC-FRC through mentoring and support from FRC girls to younger students. Meeting monthly, from July-November, STEM CAD-ettes taught workshops on woodworking, power tools, programming, fundraising, and engaged the 20+ student participants in global outreach for Yuwa All-Girls School in India.
In year two the STEM CAD-ettes grew to twenty members.
The STEM CAD-ettes partnered with The Scrunchie Project, a local student led organization, to raise $600. These funds were used to buy school supplies for Yuwa, an all girls school in India.
