Article here. Excerpt:

'Space Center Houston received a boost for its STEM program that the donor hopes will help shrink the gender gap.

Space Center Houston offers a number of programs to get kids excited about science, technology, engineering, and math, also known as STEM.

The Girls STEM Pathway program at Space Center Houston was on full display Wednesday, which gave about 30 students from Bayside Intermediate a hands-on feel for what working in a STEM career could be like.
One place where girls learn about STEM got a boost Wednesday. Dhaval Jadav donated $1 million to Space Center Houston. The majority of workers the Alliantgroup co-founder employs are women. A big reason why he donated was to help get more females into STEM.

"Females are just better," Jadav said. "Us men, we have egos, we want to win. Females are always looking at solutions."'
