To honor King’s memory, since 1994 this federal holiday has also been celebrated as a day of service.

  • A Mighty Girl's top picks of children's books about real-life women of science and fictional stories about girls who love science!

  • A Mighty Girl's top picks of STEM-themed games for all ages!

    "Science is not a boy's game, it's not a girl's game. It's everyone's game." — Nichelle Nichols

As kids get older, however, they can lose that creative spirit and start seeing learning about science and math as a chore, rather than a fun and exciting way to discover the wonders of the universe.
