The mission of Girlstart’s blog is to provide perspective on trends, events, and opportunities for girls in science, technology, engineering, and math.

Girlstart is a non-profit organization created to empower girls to excel in math, science, and technology. Founded in 1997 in Austin, Texas, Girlstart has quickly established itself as a best-case practices leader in empowering, educating, and motivating girls to enjoy and become more proficient in math, science and technology.

Girlstart offers a variety of educational formats designed for girls, adults, and families through after-school programs, workshop series, summer camps, Expanding Your Horizons, and free community events. All Girlstart programs share a common theme of hands-on exploration of science, math, and technology in a fun and girl-friendly environment. These programs are held at the Girlstart Tech Center and in Austin-area schools.

Learn about our organization and how you can contribute to a girl’s life by donating, volunteering in Girlstart programs, and getting involved in our special events.

    I like what you are doing!

    Would you be willing to weigh in on my video plea for a goofy project I am doing for my girl’s camp? It’s about facial recognition software and quantitating what people may not normally quantitate (us engineers can do anything!) Note that this is NOT to measure attractiveness, just a way to calculate percent similarity.
