Girls discover STEM careers in India

Christel House wants girls in India to know they can do anything. The school is encouraging them to learn about career opportunities in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). Thirty girls from Grades 5-8 were invited to explore options at Nokia in Bangalore. It was an empowering experience. “Women are no less than men,” says Mini M., Grade 5. “I learned anything is possible with hard work and perseverance."

In coordination with GreenLightForGirls, an NGO that inspires girls to pursue STEM careers, the students were introduced to science, technology, engineering and math concepts. Hands-on experiments showed them how STEM can be fun and is everywhere around us. Mentors met the girls and showed them how to be content creators, not just consumers. “The workshop motivated me to pursue a career in the science field,” says Mini.
