Blossom creates experiences that empower girls to explore Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
We envision a world where every girl, regardless of income, can feel welcome to pursue her passion for STEM.
Why it matters
By 2020 1 in 8 jobs in the US will be in STEM fields. Women in these fields earn more money, enjoy lower unemployment, and suffer a smaller gender gap in pay. Women make up half work force, but only a fraction work in STEM jobs.
74% of young girls express an interest in science and technology, but by the time they reach college, they lose interest. Now, only 12% of Computer Science degrees are earned by women.
Having just one positive experience with STEM can send girls the right message. We give girls a place in tech education that's just for them and help teach the skills they need to change the world.
