Rosie Riveters inspires the dreamers and doers of tomorrow. Our STEM curriculum is based on providing a productive struggle to build participants' critical thinking, problem solving skills, and overall confidence in STEM.

From age 8 to 14, girls' self-confidence falls by 30 percent. Initial engagement in middle school and high school is simply too late; at this point those participating in STEM activities have already self-selected to seek an opportunity at a time when others in their peer group are losing interest. Our goal is to provide meaningful engagement with STEM before the drop-off point.

Community Partners 

By working with a broad range of community partners Rosie Riveters' is able to provide access to a diverse range of participants as well as insight into the adaptations required to meet varied community needs. Through this approach, Rosie Riveters is able to provide quality STEM programming in environments where community partners are working more broadly to mitigate social, environmental, or systematic factors that might otherwise limit participation in STEM.

Public School Districts

Rosie Riveters’ programs offer an innovative approach to STEM learning, focusing on productive struggle and failure as a desired outcome rather than something to be feared. The Rosie Labs in-school program brings this innovation to elementary schools, linking hands-on learning to state learning standards and providing teachers with all the resources necessary to execute the program during school hours.
