S.T.E.A.M. DAY CAMP FOR MIDDLE SCHOOL AGED GIRLS IN PONCA CITY
Making sure our girls know the careers and advantages within Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math
PONCA WORK'S GIRL POWER AT A GLANCE
Why is S.T.E.A.M. so important?
When Ponca Works began there was a job posting for an office position with about 100 applicants, all female. At the same time there were dozens of jobs in the technical field that were open. It wasn't a surprise, but more of a wake up call, at the large gap of girls and STEM careers. Girl Power exposes middle school girls to strong women with STEM careers in our community, hands on activities that teach exploration in science, technical skills, problem solving, critical thinking, and much more. We also tour facilities in Ponca City that offer careers in those fields. Our first campers will be entering the workforce next year, and we are excited to see what they are choosing to pursue.
Who runs the world? Girls!
