All girls are great at math
SKATE for Girls empowers young girls by giving them courage through figure skating to enable academic success. Our mission is to increase students' love of and interest in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields. We provide a community where students have the tools to succeed in an environment full of encouraging and supportive female peers and mentors.
At SKATE for Girls, we strive to provide a program that will foster students' skating and math skills. We envision a world of confident and passionate women, where there is no longer a gender gap in STEM.
