Here is a list of five organizations helping women in their educational pursuits.
The Junior Science and Humanities Symposia (JSHS) is designed to challenge and engage students (grades 9–12) in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM). The three-day event is organized by the United States Army, Navy, and Air Force and administered by the National Science Teachers Association, a nonprofit STEM education organization.
Helping students see the possibilities of careers in STEM fields means providing them with diverse role models.
