Kent Place is committed to providing girls with a vast array of opportunities to identify, understand and appreciate the comprehensive world of STEM. As a school for girls, this commitment is of utmost importance, given the broad gender divide within STEM fields, particularly for occupations within engineering (13%) and computer and mathematical sciences (25%) (NSF.gov, Science and Engineering Indicators, 2014
). Our students pursue the complexities and power of scientific and technical fields, and walk through gateways to future academic and career possibilities as well. The exposure to STEM-related experiences and exploration instills the necessary global and critical-thinking skills that are paramount for them in the 21st century.
