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.

Interested in sponsoring a Rosie Riveters Project?

Since our pilot program in February 2016, Rosie Riveters has served over 250 children in Northern Virginia. We are constantly seeking new opportunities to provide girls with the confidence to try and succeed in STEM. If you are interested in bringing a Rosie Riveters program to your community please email: info@rosieriveters.com. 

As a small non-profit, our programs are funded on a project-by-project basis. It takes $6,920 to cover the costs of supplies, teachers, and programming logistics for each 4-week program that we offer, which means that on average, each Rosie Riveters project that a participant completes costs approximately $50 to deliver.

Support Rosie Riveters by making a donation of $25, $50, $100, $250 or $500 here: https://rosieriveters.nationbuilder.com/donate
