What is the #FIRSTLikeAGirl Campaign?
A social media movement to encourage girls and women in STEM and FIRST. By showcasing the many incredible women of FIRST and their stories, girls can find role models who they identify with and are inspired by.
Why is this important?
Through this social media campaign, we empower girls with the confidence to overcome cultural pressures, follow their dreams in STEM, and become active members of the FIRST community.
Create a video, sponsor our buttons, encourage young women and girls to pursue STEM, join or mentor a FIRST team or volunteer for one of the more than 2,600 FIRST events in your community. Be a part of the solution, be a part of the FIRST community!
FIRST#LikeAGirl is an initiative started by FRC 1902 Exploding Bacon.
