South Suburban College to Host MakerGirl Classes

MakerGirl logo

SOUTH HOLLAND, IL – MakerGirl is a non-profit start-up founded by students at the University of Illinois in Champaign. They inspire elementary girls to be active in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) through 3D printing sessions. Women are underrepresented in STEAM and girls tend to lose interest in STEAM fields around middle school. The MakerGirl program sparks curiosity at an early age by providing an environment for girls to learn, create, experiment, and engage themselves in STEAM activities.

MakerGirl is traveling across the Midwest to host 3D printing sessions for girls between the ages of 7-10 to learn more about STEAM, cutting edge technology, and much more. These sessions teach young girls 3D printing, while also teaching them about women leaders in STEAM fields, innovative companies, cutting edge technology, and much more. We want your MakerGirl to come to our session and depart wanting to actively participate in any and all parts of STEAM!
