STEM Like a Girl: Empowering Knowledge and Confidence to Lead, Innovate, and Create features 35 girls expressing their love of all things STEM. Each girl speaks to her inspirations and role models, her favorite types of experiments, and why failure is almost always a good thing. Along with these profiles are 15 experiments girls can do at home on their own or with adults including extracting DNA from a strawberry, employing Newton’s Third Law of Motion to build and fire an air cannon, and enacting acid-base chemistry to create homemade fizzy bath bombs.
