The iBIO Institute Stellar Girls program inspires young women to enter into careers involving Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Stellar Girls, supported by the Astellas USA Foundation, introduces girls in Grades 3-8 to current, interesting, “Big Ideas” in STEM fields. Through weekly after-school program activities, students explore how STEM is used to Feed, Fuel, Heal and Save the World. They engage in hands-on activities and have the opportunity to interact with STEM professionals and other volunteers to learn about STEM careers and apply STEM skills to real-world problems.
