Empowering Girls Through STEM

Meet Rose Giglio, Incoming CHS School Junior

  • 2-year Century Club member

  • CHS Math Team

  • Math National Honor Society

I have loved science, technology, engineering, and math for as long as I can remember. I wanted to come up with a way to share that love and curiosity for these topics with others, especially younger students. I also love volunteering with different organizations, so I decided to combine the two and start a mentoring program for girls in STEM. I hope to help students discover the wonder as well as the fun behind science, technology, engineering, and math through hands-on experiments and group collaborations. To me, it is also important to recognize accomplished women in STEM as they can serve as great role models for young girls and empower them to achieve their dreams!

  • “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” – Eleanor Roosevelt.

  • Encouraging girls to excel in STEM subjects helps break down gender stereotypes

  • People with STEM degrees gain a wider variety of high-paying career choices

  • STEM education can help young people feel more comfortable using new technologies

  • STEM education encourages children to become problem-solvers

  • STEM gives girls and women the tools with which they can change the world

  • More women with STEM degrees serve as role models and create a virtuous cycle that helps more girls enter the field
