A STEM Enrichment Program for Middle School Girls
Fashion FUNdamentals is a 2-week, no cost summer program designed to enhance girls' interests and self-esteem in science, technology, engineering, and math.
Fashion FUNdamentals is open to girls entering 6th, 7th, and 8th grades in fall 2016. The program was developed by faculty in Design and Merchandising at Colorado State University. This program represents an innovative, technology-rich learning experience comprising technical and social programming. Technical programming will engage girls in hands-on application of science, technology, engineering, and math concepts to develop solutions to real-world problems in the global fashion industry. Social programming will address topics of concern among adolescent girls, and thus, will have the potential to positively influence girls' self-esteem as well as their academic performance.
