About Girls in STEAM

The Girls in STEAM Symposium was created by STEAM educators at St. Margaret’s Episcopal School to encourage girls into STEAM courses and academic paths because females in particular are underrepresented in advanced STEAM courses in high school and higher education and in professional fields of industry. Yet, research shows that more diverse workforces, like having a gender balance results in higher efficiency and more creative outcomes—essentially STEAM and the world need the perspective, talents, ideas and ingenuity of girls and women.

Girls in STEAM has been a tremendous success welcoming hundreds of future “Women in STEAM,” from across Southern California and an incredible array of inspiring women leaders in their fields – engineers, scientists and researchers, medical doctors and nurses, computer programmers and technology, and entrepreneurs in conversation, collaboration and celebration of STEAM. Over the years, the event has included keynote speaker presentations from across STEAM fields, hands-on workshops and activities, break-out panel discussions by field, presentations from female UCI Grad Slam finalists and the popular mentoring and networking lunch.
