The Little Stars Foundation

Posted By: Anna Sun (August 9, 2021)
While women comprise 48% of the total workforce, they only contribute to 14% of the engineering workforce. Women are still underrepresented minorities in engineering and science fields.

The Little Stars Foundation (TLSF) addresses this issue by introducing a “Women in Technology” program for middle school girls in the Plymouth-Canton community. Our free 4-week workshop will be taught online through Zoom this year due to Covid-19, and we will cover basic related math, engineering and computer programming topics. Our instructors consist of professional female engineers from Ford Motor Company, and female engineering college graduates. The workshop will help students develop their interest and skill in STEM subjects, engaging girls and other students who are historically underrepresented in these areas. The grant of $1000 will help us offset the cost of the program. Thank you.
