In 2019, Rosie Riveters launched an after-school program at Mark Twain Middle School in Alexandria, VA. This program was established to support the wider STEM pipeline in Fairfax County Schools, the Global STEM Challenges Program (GSCP) in particular. GSCP is a three-year, interdisciplinary high school program centered on problem-based challenges that connect STEM to the real-world. The Rosie Riveters program provides the experience, tools, and exposure to STEM learning models in middle school in order to prepare and recruit rising freshmen into GSCP.
