MIT Women’s Initiative is Crowd-Funding its Outreach to Middle/High Schools. Donate by Sept. 30

The MIT Women’s Initiative — a 19-year-old, student-run outreach program to educate and motivate middle- and high-school girls to opportunities in STEM — is seeking donations until September 30 toward its $10,000 goal to expand its outreach to more schools.  Last January, 12 MIT-WI volunteers reached 3000 students in six school districts.  The proceeds of the current crowd-funding will be used to increase the existing program by 50% and also to create a video and a webinar for significantly greater reach and impact.  Every $2000 raised brings the MIT-WI program of presentations, demonstrations, and interactive activities to another school district.
