Girls in STEM


Project Goals

To foster interest and remove barriers for Afghan college girls to access & thrive in STEM fields.


Project Results

In July 10-13, 12 female undergraduate students learned Git and Github, made games on Scratch MIT, worked in teams on coding projects and presented their projects. They were taught by five guest speakers who attended the programs in Albania, China, USA, and India virtually.


Project Leader

Nargis Rafie (SFW-119)

I want to build a positive and mutual bond with them [Afghan female fellows] to learn more about their struggles and problems and use the American University of Central Asia's opportunities to support and educate them.
