After School

After School

Girlstart After School reaches more than 1,300 4th-6th grade girls with free STEM education programs every week throughout the school year at our partner schools.

Girlstart is currently reaching more than 17 districts in Central Texas, as well as ‘to Go’ in Bryan, San Antonio, Waco, and the greater Houston, DFW, and Rio Grande Valley areas.  And we aim to grow further! Girlstart is planning to scale Girlstart After School to reach more girls. We encourage you to join the Girlstart movement as a STEM Champion and we'll keep you updated on our #growgirlstart progress, and find out how you may be able to connect us to resources that can help grow Girlstart in your community. 

Girlstart After School is a free, weekly, two semester program encouraging young women to believe in themselves and to pursue paths to higher education and greater career opportunities in STEM. Girlstart After School seeks to enhance and supplement girls’ science learning in the classroom through engaging activities that introduce important STEM concepts in a hands-on and informal environment. 

Read the 2014-2015 After School Newsletter!

Research shows that Girlstart After School participants consistently out-perform their peers on state-mandated math and science tests (STAAR), and they enroll in advanced math and science courses and STEM electives at a significantly higher rate than their non-participant peers. Download the report HERE.
