Our Story

Dr. Karen Panetta, a professor at Tufts University, founded the first Nerd Girls Club to empower her female engineering students and challenge the stereotypes and myths about women in engineering. While considered a maverick for starting Nerd Girls, Dr. Panetta has been instrumental in shifting attitudes about women engineers. Nerd Girls is now expanding onto media platforms to inspire young girls through TV, web, social media, and more.

Be what you want to be, not what others want to see.
