December 1, 2022
The Engineering Society of Detroit (ESD) created the ESD Girls in Engineering Academy (GEA) to improve academic achievement and increase the interest in engineering among girls. The goal of (GEA) is to close the gender gap in engineering and STEAM professions and to promote engineering interest amongst girls. The first three years of the program are for middle school students and help prepare them academically for high school with a focus on mathematics, ELA, and engineering courses. The following four years, 9-12 grade, aims to prepare the girls for college, trades, and the workforce.
