DemoChicks On-Line Workshops for Girls
Summer Break – New programming will begin in the fall
What is a DemoChick related field? Architecture, Construction, Demolition, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (also known as ACE and STEM). It is the mission of DemoChicks to help women and girls find a footing in male-dominated industries like construction, demolition, and architecture by introducing them to the science of the trades.
DemoChicks on-line workshops for girls offer hands-on instruction that introduces elementary and middle school students to careers that are nontraditional for women. The classes include experiments and presentations. Our sessions feature specific topics (engineering, science, etc.) with interactive activities. We are DemoChicks! We empower, We elevate, We enlighten.
According to data collected by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, women are still vastly underrepresented in STEM occupations. While the percentage of women who work as mathematical and computer scientists, engineers, or chemists has increased over the past two decades, most STEM occupations still show a significant gender gap. DemoChicks is here to break down barriers to build girls up; open up their future opportunities, and provide mentorship and guidance on how to pursue and excel in their nontraditional field of choice.
