STEM Pathways for Girls

An inspiring monthly program dedicated for girls and nonbinary students in 5th-8th grade. The program includes an inspiring one-day conference for 100-150 girls usually on a Saturday, augmented by monthly in-depth workshops and camps led by professional women in STEM. The girls experience new STEM hands-on activities in small groups and engage in a friendly, safe environment to make long-lasting friendships.

Due to our funding restrictions, priority is given to students in Northern New Mexico in the following counties: Santa Fe, Taos, San Miguel, Mora, Sandoval, Rio Arriba, and Los Alamos.

Program information

At the annual day-long conference about 150 girls in 5th-8th grade get to attend a keynote address, hands-on workshops in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) led by women professionals, and a STEAM and College Fair. The girls get a chance to meet STEM role models, like-minded peers, and expand their knowledge of what STEM careers are all about.

Event Registration Process

Registration for the 2023 conference happening on November 4th will start on September 24th.

You can also register for our monthly workshops as they become available. See below fro more details

March 2024 Workshop

Polymer Play: Dive into the World of Slime

March 2nd, 2024
Female, nonbinary and gender nonconforming students in 5th-8th grade
Santa Fe Community College

In the "Polymer Play" workshop, young scientists will embark on a hands-on journey into the universe of polymers. They will create their very own batch of colorful slime, exploring the transformative process from liquid to semi-solid, all while understanding the scientific principles behind it.

As they mix and mold, they will discover:

- The concept of polymers and their many parts.

- How different ingredients can react to form new substances.

- The dual nature of slime as both a solid and a liquid.

- Comparisons between various materials, including everyday items like chocolate, to understand the properties of substances.

Through this engaging activity, the participants will not only craft their personalized slime but also develop a foundational understanding of polymers, which are present all around us in various forms, from plastics to natural fibers.
