GirlStart is an Austin, Texas based organization founded to "empower girls in math, science, engineering and technology."

Girlstart provides hands-on learning in math, science, technology and engineering concepts to a diverse group of girls and their parents. Girlstart has served over 10,000 girls and families with after-school clubs, free Saturday camps, science nights, family math nights, summer camps and more!
They want profiles of women working in science and technology It looks like most of their current profiles appear to be artists, designers and entrepreneurs, so if you are woman who is a scientist or engineer, why not share some information about yourself?

If you know a girl in the 4th through 8th grades who is interested in math or science, you might want to point her (or her parents or teachers) towards some of the GirlStart programs:
