Building girls' confidence in science and math

The SMASH Experience for Girls is designed

  • to increase middle school girls' engagement and interests in STEM education and careers
  • to train future K-12 STEM educators, RIT undergraduate and graduate students with interests in teaching STEM

SMASH's curriculum focuses on improving the two attitudinal values, perceived usefulness of mathematics and mathematical self-efficacy, impacting math-related achievement.

Join us at RIT for five days of cool science fun with math.
