Best Effort On The Behalf Of Girls

Girlstart Tech Center

Rachael Muir created Girlstart to encourage girls to take an interest in math and science - direction she was never given. Through Girlstart, girls can participate in summer camps or weekend workshops which teach html and expose young women to nontraditional roles. The program participates in the Take a Girl to College Day, which lets middle school girls go to varsity with college girls for a day. Through the Web site, girls can post their own Web pages, write to each other, and explore possible careers in math and science. The site has many links that can help girls (and for that matter boys) with their studies.
