Menlo Park: Junior League gives $30K to girls' STEM education

 

The Junior League of Palo Alto-Mid Peninsula, based in Menlo Park, has given grants to three nonprofits that focus on promoting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education for girls.

They are:

• $11,000 for the Charlie Cart Project, to help students at Encinal Elementary School learn math and science through food and cooking.

• $10,000 for The Mouse Squad, to pay for more than 100 girls in grades 7-10 to attend an Oracle digital conference in February 2017.

• $10,000 for the Tech Museum, to assemble a toolkit for parents who want to promote STEM learning for their daughters.
