KiraKira empowers generation Z girls to learn the foundations of mechanical engineering, architecture, and design through online 3D modeling courses that lead to real creations.
With KiraKira, students learn transferrable engineering and 3D modeling skills through fun student generated design lessons. Our classes are becoming richer and more diverse as our students are dictating what they want to make, and in doing so, redefining the face of female engineers-designers-students-entrepreneurs-makers. KiraKira empowers young women to recast stereotypical definitions and to design their own futures.
Through our classes and the KiraKira community of designers and learning, our goal is to quantify our social return on investment. We want to see girls who become a part of KiraKira become statistically more likely to pursue STEM curriculum and ultimately STEM careers.
Something to note: KiraKira is not just for girls. We wants boys to also take our classes and teach our classes. We hope student-teachers sign up to make content beyond jewelry — something which has already begun. We asked our students what they wanted to make, and we listened. They wanted to make jewelry. They wanted to make iPhone cases. They wanted to make musical instruments. The stereotype was just our starting point.
