The program will provide a complete immersion in the world of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics
On March 5, 6 and 7, as part of the commemoration of International Women’s Day, the U.S. Embassy in Brazil, in partnership with eight Brazilian institutions, will launch the STEAM Power for Girls Program – a complete immersion in the world of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. The pilot program edition will bring together 100 high school students from the federal institutes from various administrative regions of the Federal District. During the three-day immersion, the students will have workshops on Python language, experience design, Pitch techniques, artificial intelligence, and lectures on female empowerment and leadership. The selectees for the program already have some experience in the STEAM field. The program is free of charge.
In partnership with Glória Institute, Elas Pede Vista Law Group, the University of Brasíilia (UnB), the Federal Institute of Brasilia (IFB), Casa Thomas Jefferson, IBM, Qubo, and Pyladies DF, the STEAM Power for Girls Program aims to support the Brazilian government’s high school redesign efforts, while strengthening the commitment of the U.S. government to the empowerment of women and girls through education and training for the 21st century.
Throughout this year, participants will have face-to-face and online training and workshops, technical visits and engagement with leading women, and opportunities to develop innovative social impact ideas to help improve their communities.
Media outlets interested in interviewing the participants should contact the Press Office of the U.S. Embassy on (61) 3312-7367 / 7364.
