    • Women and girls are historically underrepresented in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields. The female shortage is attributed to two factors; women are studying STEM fields in college at a lower rate than men, and many women who earn STEM degrees go on to work in other fields.

    • COG closes the STEM achievement gap by using innovative programs and exploratory experiences to prepare girls in 6th -12th grade for a wide range of STEM-related industries.

    • COG’s vision is to create a shift in the way the world views girls and women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
