Girls in Space Is an Initiative of SSERD to Promote More women’s participation in Space and STEM fields. It is a 5 Week program designed to introduce Space Careers for Girls.
What is Girls in Space
It is an initiative by SSERD to promote girls and women in the space sector. We do not speak about just empowering women through inspiring, but we empower by educating them. Humans have always been curious while looking at the deep sky and have tried to look at what the universe holds outside the Earth's gravity. That curiosity has led us to Mars and outer space. But Alas! Women's contribution is looked at as a drop in the ocean, not because they couldn't do it, but because of the lack of opportunities to learn, grow and contribute.
We at SSERD, through 'Girls in Space', invite those ebullient minds to learn not from books and videos but learn directly from educators, scientists, entrepreneurs, etc. We do not invite you to a classroom but to a playground where you will learn by doing, not just listening.
