STEAMgirls Program
Featuring: Ming Thompson
FREE program!

A virtual program to serve girls, age 10-16, interested in studying the academic areas of STEAM: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics.

Thanks to a generous grant through The Petit Family Foundation, we are able to offer this program free of charge.

Once monthly after school for a four-month period, STEAMgirls participants meet and speak with accomplished young women, learning first-hand about the career successes women are experiencing in all areas of STEAM; providing young girls with knowledge that may ignite their passion for the future.

Ming Thompson is an architect, designer, and co-founder of Atelier Cho Thompson, a New Haven- and San Francisco-based multidisciplinary practice working between architecture, interiors, graphics, and strategy. ACT’s work frequently blurs the boundaries between typologies, as they draw inspiration from their work in schools, museums, offices, restaurants, and homes around the world. Ming was a recipient of the AIA Young Architect Award in 2020, and her firm has been the recipient of numerous national and regional design honors. Educated at Yale College and the Harvard Graduate School of Design, Ming has taught at the California College of the Arts and has served on design juries around the U.S. Ming is a first-year advisor at Yale and serves on the board of Yale-China.
