Love this

Black Girls Code missions is "to increase the number of women of color in the digittal space by empowering girls of color ages 7 to 17 to bceome innovators in STEM fields, leaders in their communities, and builders of their own futures through exposure to computer science and technology."  

GoldieBlox is a toy company out to inspire the next generation of female engineers. 


Two seperate companies but both aim to encourage more females to enter the STEM field.

Black Girls Code has branches across the country but they seem to be most active in CA and DC. The one in NYC hardly ever has anything going on. If you are interested in promoting STEM among black girls, check into services/organizations based in your state. There is one in NJ/NYC that I participate in regularly.

GoldieBlox sounds like something geared toward white women. 

I need to come up with something for blacks.
