The Million Girls Moonshot seeks to re-imagine who can engineer, who can build, who can make. It will inspire and prepare the next generation of innovators by engaging one million more girls in STEM learning opportunities through afterschool and summer programs over the next 5 years.
Beyond School Bells is excited to announce the national launch of the Million Girl Moonshot (MGM). This is a multi-year initiative led by STEMnext to reimagine who can engineer, who can build, and who can make cool stuff. The goals of MGM are to inspire and prepare the next generation of innovators by engaging 1 million more girls and underrepresented youth in STEM learning opportunities through afterschool and summer programs and to help alter the workforce trajectory for youth of all ages by creating a school to career pipeline of inclusive STEM learning. Over the winter and 2021 year, Beyond School Bells will be working with our national partners to build an ecosystem of support for girls and underrepresented youth to engage with mentors, join engineering clubs and participate in new STEM learning opportunities.

Professional Development Opportunities
Let's get started! In addition to the resource and guidance to help all youth develop an engineering mindset, we're pleased to provide professional development opportunities FREE of charge.
Webinars are led by Moonshot implementation partners, researchers, and practitioners to share effective strategies, best practices, and resources to engage more girls in STEM and engineering. Webinars also enable participants from across the country to connect, collaborate, and learn from one another. Click here for upcoming webinars and to access past recordings.
