Science, technology, engineering and math: It’s a girl’s world, too

The issue is not that women are incapable of success in STEM fields — science, technology, engineering and math — but rather that they are not exposed to it early on or can be intimidated by the male-dominated world. Throughout Kansas City, groups such as the KC STEM Alliance, Science Pioneers and Society of Women Engineers are working to show young girls that STEM careers can be as rewarding as they are fun.
