GE Girls: The Future of STEM

Summer camp today means more than capture the flag and canoes -- students are learning to fly drones, create computer codes, and conduct chemical experiments at GE Girls camps across the country!

GE is committed to providing the next generation of students with the STEM skills they need to succeed in an increasingly high-tech world. 

In 2011, GE Girls began as a small program held at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Today, we are proud to partner with over 20 universities across the country in introducing middle school girls to the world of science, technology, engineering and math.

From Milwaukee to Denver to D.C., GE employees have partnered with local organizations to gives students hands-on experience working with our latest technologies. By encouraging these young women to pursue their interest in STEM at an early age, we are helping shape the future leaders of innovative companies like GE.
