Founded in 1999, we are a New York State not-for-profit

Our Mission:

to help females learn the mathematics—and "numbers-related" disciplines—they need to achieve their academic and career goals.

Introduction to Spatial Reasoning Workshop

Spatial Training Improves Children's Mathematics Ability.  Yi-Ling, C. & Mix. K. (2014).  Journal of Cognition and Development, 15(1):  2 - 11.

"Our results clearly indicate that spatial skills are malleable.  Even a small amount of training can improve reasoning in both males and females, children and adults."  The Malleability of Spatial Skills:  A Meta-analysis of Training Studies.  Utall, D.; Hand, L.; Meadow, N.; & Newcombe, N. (2013).  Psychological Bulletin, 139(2), 352 - 402.

"The connection between space and math is so compelling that many now believe spatial training could be an important resource for improving performance in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines."  Spatial ability and STEM:  A sleeping giant for talent identification and development.  Lubinski, D. (2010).  Personality and Individual Differences, 49, 344 - 351.

Spatial Intelligence involves the interdependence and cooperation of two abilities:
   •   Spatial Visualization, which is the ability to envision three-dimensional images in the mind, and
   •   Spatial Reasoning, which is the ability to mentally manipulate and reason with these images.

Most people are either good at both abilities or good at none.  Females do not perform spatial reasoning tasks as well as males do—a fact that has been used to explain a sex imbalance in STEM fields.  Fortunately for us females, there is considerable evidence that Spatial Reasoning abilities can improve with education and practice—and that's what we want to do:  provide the education and practice, by way of workshops, that will enable and empower middle school girls to be successful in STEM areas of study.
