In fall 2018, one college senior used Pretty Brainy as a platform for researching the STEM gender gap and girls' math self-efficacy. Among the things girls confided: "You don't know you need this [kind of program]." See the research findings and more of what girls have to report.
"The amount of female brain power in the room for MISSion Innovation was energizing, and the experience taught me more than a few math equations or a couple of scientific principles," writes Madzie B. Learn how the experience took her beyond her comfort zone.
MISSion Innovation, a 24-hour innovation marathon, is the latest service learning program from Pretty Brainy. The program is designed to bring young women together to innovate new solutions for a real-world problem, greenhouse gas emissions, with a real client.
Experts to deliver lightning lessons during our two-day innovation marathon for the climate, MISSion Innovation, are announced. Our guests will give innovators insight on engineering design thinking, behavior change, climate science, and stereotype threat.
MISSion Innovation participants will collaborate Sept. 22-23 to address climate action challenges articulated by the City of Fort Collins, CO. Solutions will help the city advance its climate action plan and meet its 2050 goal for carbon neutrality. See the challenge statements here.
