Million Girls Moonshot

What is Million Girls Moonshot?

Million Girls Moonshot is a STEM initiative that seeks to re-imagine who can engineer, who can build and who can make.  In Utah we are doing this by reaching girls from a young age, using near-peer mentors and involving families.  In 2021 we launched our Million Girls Moonshot program in seven pilot sites.  These sites were recipients of our MGM innovation stations, STEM curriculum and a wide array of professional development.  This Mott funded initiative aims to engage one million more girls in STEM learning opportunities and we are pleased to announce that we are ready to expand to an additional ten sites.
