Sparking Girls’ Interest in STEM
DIY Girls provides hands-on STEM coding and electronics programs for girls of color in the Northeast San Fernando Valley that are designed to spark their interest in STEM fields and careers as well as support their self-confidence, curiosity and persistence. We do what we do in order to change the way girls perceive STEM careers. We believe that creating with tech builds the confidence needed to make anything possible. We want our DIY Girls to apply the technical skills they learn to projects they love so they know the future is theirs to make.

Making for Good: Empowering Girls to Improve Air Quality in Their Community
‘Making for Good’ is a DIY Girls initiative that implements the design thinking process to empower girls to identify and prototype solutions to issues encountered in their communities. We will expand our ‘Making for Good’ project to investigate air quality using open-source technology and propose solutions for a Los Angeles with clean air by 2050. This project enables girls and others to become advocates for the change they want to see in their communities.
