There is a serious educational deficit in retaining middle school girls’ interest in STEM and STEM-related areas throughout our nation. We believe to keep girls interested in STEM we must instill confidence and self-esteem, while providing a unique STEM experience.
The Taking Up Space mission is to expand the opportunities and future educational and career goals for Native American girls, by immersing them in STEM for six days at Space Camp.
