This program sets out to do educational, professional, and personal development. It provides a STEM-focused program that encourages girls to see themselves in STEM.

Generation giga girls (g3) program
G3, Generation Giga Girls, was created to serve as an introduction to data analytics. This program uses real world topics such as, GPA fairness and equity in school discipline, to demonstrate how data analytics can be used to address these important issues. The goal of this program is for girls to learn how to understand, manipulate, analyze, and utilize data to support important issues.
Girls in the G3 program will learn how to analyze data using excel, while thinking critically about how to combat these real-world issues. The program will also enhance the ability to talk publicly about these issues through group presentations centered on the data behind the issues.
