    Knocking Barriers Down to Build Girls Up

    DemoChicks advances gender equity and women’s empowerment by breaking down barriers for girls and women of color to pursue nontraditional careers in the STEAM subfields of architecture, construction, and engineering (ACE). We empower, enlighten, and elevate girls and women aged 7-25 by providing: hands-on, project-based learning in ACE concepts; mentorship from ACE leaders directly, and by visiting work sites to see their expertise in action; and scholarships to support the pursuit of ACE-focused college degrees.
