Science Cheerleader is an organization consisting of professional cheerleaders who have pursued careers in science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM). The organization aims to inspire young girls to defy stereotypes and pursue a STEM career. Kelly, Melanie and Brittany B. love encouraging young girls to explore their interests. Having a career and dancing is both possible and manageable. While in Arizona, Kelly, Melanie and Brittany interviewed with NBC Nightly News to discuss their careers in science and dance.
