Join HTHH and Make an Impact
The leak in the STEM pipeline starts early for girls, causing a huge gap in the U.S. STEM talent pool. Girls tend to lose interest and drop out of the STEM academic pipeline in middle school and high school, which greatly limits their future career opportunities.
HTHH closes the gender leak by aggregating and funding diverse programs that encourage and prepare young women in middle school and high school to excel in STEM. We incubate and invest in programs such as gender equity training for educators, science camps and peer mentoring programs. We increase the effectiveness of these programs by connecting them into a holistic approach that addresses gender equity, academic preparation and driving interest and awareness in STEM.
Since we were founded in Texas in 2001, we have:
o Incubated new programs in the areas of gender equity training, hands-on physics camps and robotics clubs for high school girls;
o Supported gender equity training and career workshops for nearly 2,000 STEM teachers and school counselors, impacting 40,000 students annually;
o Increased the number of young women who earned STEM degrees among those who attended physics camps.
