About Girlstart

Girlstart empowers girls in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

The world’s greatest challenges need new STEM ideas and insights. Half of the world’s potential ideamakers—women and girls—are discouraged from developing their ideas because of social bias or inequity.

Girlstart’s mission is to solve this.

Girlstart cultivates a culture where risk is rewarded, curiosity is encouraged, and creativity is expected. As a result, Girlstart girls are connected, brave, and resilient. Girlstart makes girls more successful and inspires them to take on the world’s greatest challenges.

Girlstart is honored to be recognized as one of the nation's leading STEM education organizations for girls. Learn more about our national expansion, and view our latest annual report, at
