More than a STEM event…the All Girl Challenge is a one and a half day creativity marathon for girls in Grades 6 – 12 from the Merrimack Valley.

Untitled-1Combining each girl’s ability to create ideas with the courage to act upon them, girls learn how Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) applies to things they like to do! Cultivating each girl’s leadership, entrepreneurship, and STEM skills, interdisciplinary all girl teams will develop an innovative product or service that integrates STEM and solves a social problem. Inspiring healthy competition, girls presenting winning prototype designs will receive awards from female mentors and judges.
