Women in STEM occupations earn on average 33% more than those in non-STEM jobs.


Play Like a Girl Camp helps rising 9th grade girls deepen their love of sports and gain exposure to STEM concepts in sports while learning about exciting sports careers.

Camp girls participate in daylong STEM-in-sports excursions led by female professionals at leading businesses, universities, media outlets and professional sports leagues, teams and venues. These experiential learning opportunities bring out the best in our girls and allow them to see the world of possibilities that await them.

Play Like a Girl Camp is making a mark in the STEM and sports industries by celebrating, showcasing and championing women in STEM-related sports careers and, ultimately, increasing opportunity for young women in STEM and sports.

In 2016, we started the Play Like a Girl Camp – a day camp program specially designed to expose rising 9th grade girls to exciting and unique career opportunities at the intersection of science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) and sports.

The program brings home the relevance of STEM in sports through mentoring, career-readiness workshops, panel discussions and Q&A sessions, demonstrations, hands-on activities and behind-the-scenes tours of local businesses, colleges and universities, media outlets and sporting leagues, teams and venues.
