"Tinkering is a hands-on form of open-ended exploration to learn about how things work, how to improve them, and how to build new things. Having an area of the home devoted to tinkering can make it more likely that family will spend time exploring and creating." A fun website with ways to "tinker" with simple electronics, machines, engineering, & coding tasks.
We at FIRST Team Paradox 2102 have dedicated ourselves to becoming and guiding the next generation of problem solvers. For the past decade, engineers, artists, machinists, managers, programmers, writers and makers have worked together to create an environment where creativity and passions bloom.
I have been a member of this great team since my Freshman year of High School
Girls RISEnet, a partnership between the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science, the Association of Science-Technology Centers, and SECME, Inc., strengthened the professional capacity of informal science educators to engage and motivate minority girls in grades 6-12 to explore and pursue science and engineering careers.

International Genetically Engineered Machine Competition
Designed for students with interested in biology, the iGEM competition has students work in teams to build genetically engineered systems with biological parts called BioBricks. The goal is to create projects that positively contribute to the world.
The MATE competition challenges K-12, community college, and university students from all over the world to design and build ROVs to tackle missions modeled after scenarios from the ocean workplace. The competition’s class structure of beginner, intermediate, and advanced complements the education pipeline by providing students with the opportunity to build upon their skills – and the application of those skills – as they engineer increasingly more complex ROVs for increasingly more complex mission tasks.

Tools and Tiaras
Who says that the tools are not for girls?
We want women and girls to come forward and shatter the stereotypes against them and show the world what they are truly capable of doing. Tools & Tiaras, wholeheartedly believe that girls can do every and anything and we aim to help girls learn trade skills by exposing, inspiring, and mentoring them to excel in these areas. We want to empower girls to be trailblazers.
Summer Camps & Chapters with workshops.
Sells fun coffee mugs, t-shirts, & bandanas to help provide workshops.
VEX Robotics - Providing the tools to inspire the problem solvers of tomorrow.
What are you doing to help solve the global STEM crisis?
The world faces an unprecedented need for new innovators, thinkers, and problem solving leaders. Our goal is to create engaging, affordable, and powerful solutions that immerse students in STEM through the excitement of building and programming robots.
"DiscoverE works to ensure people everywhere understand how engineers, technicians, and technologists make the world a better place. 30 years ago we were the first to call on the engineering community to volunteer in their local schools and help young students discover engineering. Now we lead a growing volunteer and educator movement recognized worldwide. "
Wonderful site with information on Engineering: Programs, Training, Activities (including at home), & Downloads
This is FIRST Team 1710’s twelfth year competing in the FIRST Robotics Competition. Located in Olathe, Kansas, and based out of Olathe Northwest High School, Team 1710, The Ravonics Revolution, has grown every year since its creation. Their Programs Include: You Go Girl and STEM Connection Programs.
Long before women engineers were considered something special, some amazing women were doing great things to pave the way. Although their contributions are sometimes unrecognized, women with a little ingenuity have always had the power to do great things.
