30 Seconds with Jacqueline Means, aka the Stem Queen

Science, technology, engineering and mathematics are subjects that still intimidate many girls. Means, a 10th-grader at Delaware Military Academy, hopes to change that, especially for girls of color. Known as @stemqueende on Instagram, she recently started a girls' empowerment program that emphasizes STEM education and anti-bullying strategies. Her busy schedule also includes cheerleading and serving as a cadet in the Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps.

Wilmington Teen Offers Girls Day of Fun with Science

At the top of Jayla Redden's pasta tower sat the winning marshmallow. 

The 8-year-old and her team had crowded around the uncooked noodles and tape, their nimble hands searching out just the right angles to make it all stand tall. With the pasta support beams in place and the fluffy white treat on top, they'd made the tallest tower.

Q&A with Jacquline Means - the 15 year old girl defying the odds in Murdertown USA

There’s no better way to celebrate International Day of the Girl then to feature a young woman making huge strides in the STEM community. Jacqueline Means is a 15-year-old girl from Southbridge – Wilmington, Delaware, otherwise known as Murdertown USA. Shootings and robberies are the norm here. Unfortunately 60% of kids dropout of school, giving her hometown the highest dropout rates in the country. However, Jacqueline has defied the odds. She currently holds a 4.0 GPA at the Delaware Military Academy but her success doesn’t stop there. Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics are subjects that still intimidate many girls and she is on the path to changing that by hosting Girls Empowerment STEM Events.
