We tell our girls they can do anything. Be anything.
So, why is it so hard to find clothes for young girls who aspire to explore the universe or dig for dinosaurs?
We started buddingSTEM in 2014 when we couldn't find the things our girls loved on girls' clothes - sending our girls the message that things like science, space, and trains were "for boys".
Watch us tell the buddingSTEM story on our Kickstarter video (2 minutes, 26 seconds):
But this isn't just our story...it is likely your story, or your daughter or granddaughter's story, or your niece's story, or your friend's daughter's story.
We know that the images on girls' clothes matter, but most clothing options tell young girls that things like science and engineering aren’t for them.
Join the movement to encourage girls' early interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math).
Let's validate our girls interests in these subjects from an early age, and celebrate their opportunity to grow up and make a difference in STEM fields where women are underrepresented today.

We started buddingSTEM in 2014 when we couldn't find the things our girls loved on girls' clothes -- sending our girls the message that things like science, space, and trains were "for boys". buddingSTEM celebrates girls budding interests in science, technology, engineering, math, and other areas of early exploration with cute prints on great colors. After raising $70,000 on Kickstarter in Spring 2015, co-founders Jennifer Muhm and Malorie Catchpole received GeekWire's Geek of the Year award for their work on buddingSTEM.
