KI wants to create a more just, equitable human-centered world by nurturing youth and young adults to be leaders, critical thinkers and doers who see the people in any community as the most valuable assets and are committed to working with marginalized communities to bring about change that leads to empowered self-sustainable communities.
They will also engage in hands-on activities of investigation, exploration and creativity, develop or enhance their critical thinking and work collaboratively in a fun atmosphere. Assisted by an adult club coordinator, positive interaction and teamwork will be encouraged. The girls will also learn about careers in STEAM, how STEAM is used in and by businesses and be exposed to professionals in various STEAM fields (for example: Informatics, Biotechnology, Chemistry, Engineering, etc.).
