Through hands-on activities, (Girls at Play, Fly girls, Girls Rocket, Girls
Can Be Anything etc..) girls of all ages (6 -18) can explore, ask questions,
persist, and solve problems. By interacting with women and men pursuing
STEM careers, girls come to view these careers as exciting and realistic
options for themselves. Girls Inc. Operation SMART® is an approach that
each organization can apply to its own programming.
Girls Incorporated® of Memphis
Girls Dig It
Girls ages 12 to 14 build their analytical and interpretive
skills while they work alongside archaeologists, making
exciting discoveries that unveil the past and present of their
communities and their culture.
Thinking SMART
This program links girls ages 12 to 14 with
professionals (particularly women) in the STEM fields.
These “SMART Partners” help plan and deliver the
program, encouraging girls to think like scientists by
thinking with scientists. Thinking SMART introduces
girls to interesting science, math, and technology
careers and pairs them with accomplished women in
these industries.
The program engages girls in team projects within
four areas: Material Girls (structural engineering/
architecture), Eco Girls (ecology/environmental
engineering), Space Girls (space/physics), and Net
Girls (computer science).
