The WomEng LaunchPad Toolkit introduces the girl child to the world of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and aims to break stereotypes about the industry that have been embedded at an early age. LaunchPad Toolkits & Workshops provides the foundation for WomEng’s #1MillionGirlsInSTEM campaign which aims to create STEM awareness globally. Your donation will go directly to the providing a WomEng Toolkit to primary and high school girls in Sub-Saharan Africa.
LaunchPad workshops aid in developing a girl's vision of her career aspirations and the difference she can make in STEM. The key concepts of our LaunchPad workshop is to:
- Re-imagine career choices: Reframing the question “What do we want to be when you grow up?” to “What problem do you want to solve when you grow up?”
- Introduction to the world of STEM: Presenting an outlook of the future and the role that engineers and STEM professionals play to make it possible.
- Self-worth and personal branding: Building a sense of self-worth through self-awareness and personal branding workshops.
The largest cost for a LaunchPad workshop is a WomEng Toolkit which contains our signature pink hard hat, a craft pack and a workbook "The WomEng Guide to Becoming an Engineer". The pink hard hat serves as a canvas for girls to brand with their career aspirations. The LaunchPad workshop is facilitated by WomEng-trained LaunchPad Global Ambassadors.
