Sabina London was inspired to spearhead a program to encourage elementary-age girls to learn about STEM when she was just a sophomore in high school. After reaching out to friends and teachers, and ultimately acquiring grant support and non-profit status, her efforts culminated in 95 free STEM camps and school programs in 17 states within just 5 years. The fact that the programs are youth-led is just one of the extraordinary things about this unique organization. Hands-on activities explore engineering, rocketry, global warming and its consequences, electricity, and future career choices. The program initially was offered to girls only but now includes boys.
