About us

We are a team of high school students from a variety of high schools in the Los Angeles and Orange County area!

Mission Statement

INTEGIRLS is a teen-led nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering girls in STEM. We are based in the Los Angeles/Orange County region of Southern California and host math competitions open to girls and non binary students comfortable being grouped with girls or all gender.

Women in STEM Statistics

According to the United States Census Bureau women made up 8% of STEM workers in 1970. This STEM proportion expanded to 27% by 2019. That same year, women also made up nearly half of math and life science occupations.

We hope to continue seeing this rising trend of women in STEM, and organization seeks to help inspire more girls to pursue a career in STEM!

Our Team

Sydney Spangler


Senior Chapter Head

Hi! My name is Sydney, and I am a senior in the South Bay. I am super excited to serve on the team and help support girls interested in STEM. I hope by organizing these competitions and events, we can reach kids who may not have as much access to math-related resources. My other interests include the performing arts and hanging out with friends! Hope to see you all soon.
