STEM Savvy

STEM Savvy is an all-girls after-school club for students at Gettysburg High School. The program encourages girls to explore science, technology, engineering, and math, fields in which women are underrepresented. Instructors and mentors also assist students with college applications, interviewing skills, and other aspects of the college search, including visits to explore schools’ science departments. If you’re a Gettysburg High School student and you’d like to get involved with STEM Savvy, contact chemistry teacher Kristen Bechtel.

Why should we encourage girls to get involved in STEM? Read more here!

Thanks to the Comcast Foundation for their support of our STEM Savvy program! The foundation presented us with a $10,000 grant for our 2013-2014 school year to focus on forensics!

STEM Savvy is made possible through additional generous support from our corporate sponsors. Find out how you can support STEM Savvy and our other women’s empowerment programs.
