What You'll Get

The Issue: Relatively Few Women in Math and Science Fields

Jobs in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) will play a crucial role in the United States' efforts to maintain a strong standing in the global economy through innovation, according to research from the Department of Commerce. However, though women make up roughly half the US workforce, they are “vastly underrepresented” among holders of STEM jobs and degrees.

The Campaign: Sponsoring Girls in STEM Summer Program

If this Grassroots campaign raises $400, then Girls Inc. of Houston can sponsor four girls in its pilot STEM summer program, Operation Smart. Each additional $100 raised will fund participation for another girl in the STEM program. Sponsorship covers the costs of supplies, snacks, and STEM programming for one week. Operation Smart introduces young women to science, technology, engineering, and math through hands-on lessons designed to enable them to develop new skills and build self-confidence.

You can follow the progress of this and other Grassroots campaigns at the Groupon Grassroots website.
