4 H Logo - 4 leaf clover STEM Repository

This STEM repository was designed as part of the M​​illion Girls Moonshot Initiative led by the Connected Learning Lab and the STEM Next Opportunity Fund. The goal of the repository is to help middle school girls and other underserved middle school youth find opportunities to maintain their involvement in STEM after graduating from their middle school programs. The repository opportunities listed were chosen based upon their focus (STEM) and target age group. By regularly populating/updating this site, we hope to help remove some of the barriers that impact the continued participation of girls in STEM in​​​​ Palm Beach County.
