Million Girls Moonshot

The Million Girls Moonshot is a national initiative that seeks to re-imagine "who can engineer, who can build and who can make." Working in conjunction with the Mott-funded 50 state afterschool network, this coalition aims to provide STEM learning opportunities to a million girls over the next 5 years. The OST environment is perfectly suited for students to pursue STEM avenues and inspire further exploration of STEM careers.

As partner to the Millions Girls Moonshot initiative, MOST is hosting a series of workshops and trainings focused on engaging young women interested in STEM fields. The workshops, which feature experts in drone technology, aerospace engineering and construction, will discuss the practical steps needed to develop modern skillsets and find satisfying careers in emerging industries.
