History and Background

The Femineer Program was created and funded by Cal Poly Pomona’s College of Engineering in 2013 to inspire additional females to pursue STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) in their education and career. The program provides K-12 students with project-based learning, female engineering student mentors, and opportunities to visit Cal Poly Pomona, while building a sustainable program and community for current and future STEM leaders. The program engages participants through highly creative, hands-on activities. By engaging with real-world applications, Femineers acquire the technical knowledge and practical skills necessary to become confident and strong in their future careers.
