Research data shows that women are greatly underrepresented in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields. The Enchanted Closet began offering a variety of STEM related GIRL$ Programs in 2012 to close this gap. Through a partnership with the Georgia Institute of Technology, the Enchanted Closet continues to expose metropolitan Atlanta girls, ages 12-19, to opportunities in science, technology, engineering and math. 

The STEM project enables girls to learn how to program everyday items with electronic devices to perform cool and useful functions like turning a shoe box into knock lock box to hide stuff from their siblings and using a motion sensor to turn on a radio when they or someone else walks into the room. Other projects include building a robotic arm to move things around, creating a wireless game system and creating a dancing suit with lights. Girls may rank the projects that most interest them and send an email to 

The GIRL$ STEM Programs have been funded by a grant from Wells Fargo. Additional funds are needed for 2014. Donations can be made at Questions regarding the STEM projects and other GIRL$ Program offerings should be directed to the Enchanted Closet at 404-221-3498 or 

Advance registration and parental consent is necessary for girls under the age of 18. Approximately 25 girls will be selected for the 2014 programs.
