Girlstart's Fundraiser:

Girlstart Summer Camp Expansion and Girlstart in a Box

Girlstart's Photo



Our proposed project is to expand our Summer Camps beyond Girlstart’s Science and Technology Center in Austin, to bring STEM summer camps to girls around the state, and use this experience to plan and develop Girlstart in a Box (a way to reach girls with high quality STEM programming who are not in our area). Girlstart in a Box will empower, equip, and train communities throughout America to implement our Summer Camp program, which is currently limited to girls in Central Texas. Girlstart in a Box will provide resources and training for communities who wish to gain STEM programming but may not have capacity to do so. We will, through this program expansion, provide a turnkey solution for communities, community organizations, or schools that seek to have high-quality STEM camps for (boys and) girls.

Girlstart will:

• Deliver 4 weeks each of Summer Camp in at least ten (10) sites across Texas (to include Brownsville, the Valley, El Paso, Killeen, San Antonio, and other sites).

• Develop—based on the lessons learned through the Summer Camp expansion—Girlstart in a Box, a turnkey solution to bring STEM Summer Camps to other locations.

• Alpha and beta test Girlstart in a Box in at least ten (10) sites across Texas and the nation, to include a range of communities including urban and rural/remote areas.

• Refine Girlstart in a Box to reflect lessons learned through the development process.

• Launch Girlstart in a Box to reach communities across the nation and throughout the world.
