Our Program

The core of Rosie Riveters’ programs is a project-based, after-school curriculum for girls aged 4-14 (grades pre-K-8) that is open to the public and is completely free of charge. Each of the twelve sessions of our 4-week program features:

  • an interactive overview of a STEM concept (density, circuits, chemical reactions, etc.);
  • a tangible and hands-on project that explores that concept;
  • exploration of real-world careers associated with the above project through interaction with mentors.
The hands-on projects at the core of our program teach STEM skills, encourage girls to develop their own creative processes for design and implementation, and enable them to see their skills in action.  All these elements work together to develop each participant’s confidence in her abilities.
