Stempower is a mentoring program offered by Georgia Tech women students that encourages girls to explore STEM and learn key character values. Partnering with the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta, two Stempower mentors meet bimonthly with fourth- and fifth-grade girls in a given troop.

Stempower has become one of the outreach initiatives of WST with eight Tech mentors and 100 Girl Scout mentees in the U.S.
