Cultivating achievement and interest in STEM

About nPower Girls

What is nPower Girls and how does it work?

nPower Girls is designed to spark girls’ curiosity in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) through activities that promote knowledge and discovery.

ESD 112 and grant partners invite grades 4-8 Math and Science teachers from Castle Rock, Longview, Mill A, Mt. Pleasant, Naselle-Grays River Valley School, Ridgefield, Three Rivers Christian School, and Wishram to participate in a three-year professional development program. We will explore community-based STEM businesses and meet with women working in these positions. nPower Girls is aimed at strengthening instructional practices that support female students’ learning in STEM and connect them with mentors around the state.
