Girls in STEM

There are thousands of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics – or STEM – jobs in the United States. But only about 30 percent of them are occupied by women.

Educators across Kentucky are trying to change that by creating “Girls Only” science clubs. But are they paying off?

Meteorologist Jason Lindsey joined girls at one club where the experiment is working.

If you have a girl interested in any of these topics, you may want to take them to STEM 4 Girls. It is a girls only science event taking place on November 1st at the WKCTC Emerging Technology Center in Paducah. To learn more and to sign up, click here.
