Landscapes, Trees, and Plants
Project in progress

What is your wish for this project?

78% of school-aged girls have an interest in STEM, yet women only make up 25% of the STEM workforce. We are determined to change that through education, marketing, and community more

How are you going to do it?

With a $200 Roots and Shoots mini-grant, we will send 5 girls (age minimum is 13, so only a few of our members qualify) to a Job Shadowing class at Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, CA. The choices include Veterinary Medicine, Mammalogy, Marine Biology, and others. This unique program is consistent with the goals of both Roots and Shoots, in its environmental impact, as well as our group, MESSAGE, in advocating the importance of STEM fields for females.
