The Greater Houston Women’s Chamber of Commerce (GHWCC) partnered with Travis Elementary to present STEAM Town USA, an initiative to increase exposure of third grade girls to math and science through STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) concepts, improve grades and graduation rates, and encourage girls to pursue STEAM careers. The program consisted of a series of monthly after-school sessions with each focusing on a different business or aspect of the community along with the science and math that supports it. Students participated in monthly offerings of data analysis, hands-on experiments and design activities. Engineers from ExxonMobil, Travis’ Partner In Education, worked with the girls and prepared them for competition.
