Sabina was shocked to see how few other girls were in her high school Honors Chemistry class. Through her youth-led nonprofit STEM You Can!, also known as Girls Science Interactive, Sabina turned one middle school and high school girls’ science camp into over twenty free STEM summer programs across fourteen states. STEM You Can! has developed a curriculum for schools that includes topics like space exploration and global warming, complete with fun science experiments.

STEM You Can! operates within a network of over 100 student volunteers and is expected to train 1,000 volunteers and impact 10,000 girls in over twenty states by 2020. In recognition of her success, Sabina has been named a National Child Awareness Ambassador, a Jefferson Awards Media Partner Winner for public service, and a Jefferson Awards GlobeChanger. Sabina has discussed STEM You Can! on Good Morning America and is currently looking to partner with Google to expand her curriculum to schools nationwide.

Every one of the teen leaders found the experience so rewarding that the following year they not only continued but inspired many of their friends as well.
