FOR GIRLS IN SCIENCE
In January 2013, L’Oréal USA embarked on a new and exciting initiative, the L’Oréal USA For Girls In Science website. Under the auspices of the L’Oréal For Women In Science program, For Girls In Science was created to share L’Oréal’s passion for science and research with the next generation of young girls, between 13-18 years of age. Here they can explore and be inspired about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). It is a site where girls who have a desire to make “what ifs” possible learn how to make them a reality.
