STEM4GIRLS

The percentage of women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) professions is low. It is important to achieve a gender balance in STEM. An effective approach to address this imbalance is to inspire young girls in secondary schools to pursue STEM courses and careers.

STEM4Girls, a project of Clintonel Innovation Centre – CIC Aba, inspires young girls to pursue and excel in STEM careers.

STEM4GIRLS is an excursion & workshop for high school girls at CIC where they are introduced to modern technologies including:

  • 3D printing
  • Robotics
  • CNC Machining
  • Embedded Systems Programming (Arduino)
  • Plastic Filament Extrusion & Pelletizing
  • Computer Aided Design (CAD)/3D modelling

For this year’s Citi Global Community Day (GCD), Citi Bank Aba partnered with CIC to train 102 young girls from different secondary schools in Aba through STEM4Girls.
