Caroline Houghton

Caroline is a senior at Shady Side Academy where she 5-day boards during the  school year. During the school year she actively participates in speech and debate, environmental club, and robotics club. In addition, at her schools she is on the varsity girls soccer team and the track team where she competes in high jump and pole vault. She came up with the idea for Caroline’s Project after long talks with her STEM based family about the lack of women in the field. She has held an interest in both STEM and international business. She has pursued highest levels of math, science and two full years of computer programming. Her summers are used to explore her interests and help her understand potential career opportunities. Most recently, Caroline traveled to London, England for 4 weeks to learn about different aspects of creating and running a business. 

Looking for a better world to grow up into, and with a youthful insight into the minds of young women, Caroline created Caroline’s Project.
