The Columbia Girls in STEM Initiative prepares motivated high school students from typically underrepresented populations for STEM studies in college, in collaboration with industry leaders throughout the country.
Taught by Columbia University faculty, the program provides participants with a one-week, integrated learning experience that focuses on three strategic approaches:
- INTRODUCE female STEM role models and leadership
- BUILD a bridge between K–12 and college
- CONNECT the STEM classroom to the real world
