WHY SHE ENGINEERS MATTERS
We’ve reached more than 4,200 girls in programs just for them over the past five years – but there is more work to be done. Help The Works Museum reach more girls and have more impact by supporting She Engineers.
In the state of Minnesota between 2014-2021, 28% of all new jobs are projected to be in STEM.1
Of 4th grade girls in Minnesota, only 53% consider themselves interested in science.1
For students in Minnesota entering the workforce in the same year, 17% of women hold STEM careers, as opposed to 26% of men.1
In the United States, STEM careers pay more than twice the median average wage.2
