Young female learners will be encouraged to dream big because of a newly formed partnership between Frito-Lay Variety Packs, science-fiction star Sonequa Martin-Green, and STEM Next’s Million Girls Moonshot.
According to a press release, the shared commitment will make STEM learning opportunities accessible to young girls through the Back-to-School Blast Off program. Martin-Green hopes her presence will encourage the next generation to evolve their interests in STEM.
“Representation matters and sometimes, all it takes to inspire us to achieve something is to see someone we can relate to doing it first,” said Martin-Green, according to a press release. “I’m honored for the opportunity to join Frito-Lay Variety Packs in their mission to inspire talented young girls everywhere to develop their passions for STEM and pursue their dreams.”
