STEM and Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics
Research data shows that women are greatly underrepresented in the STEM fields. The Enchanted Closet offers a variety of GIRL$ Programs to close the gap. Through the Enchanted Closet GIRL$ Program, metro Atlanta girls, ages 12-19 years old, are exposed to careers in science, technology, engineering and math. One of the first STEM programs offered was Girls Can Create Games, Not Just Play Them with Torrance Hill and other gaming industry professionals. Girls will learned about various opportunities in the gaming industry, including the elements of video game design, graphic design, animation, programming and game testing. We’ve also hosted Commercial, Digital Media, and Music Video Production featuring music video producer, Maya Table. Ms. Table taught the girls how to develop a video treatment and shared valuable life lessons on how she navigated the field, was successful in producing music videos, and the interpersonal skill development required to be successful in any endeavor. The Enchanted Closet has partnered with Georgia Tech departments and student organizations, and numerous other entities to present STEM and STEAM opportunities to girls in creative and interesting ways.
