Children are born curious and eager to explore the world around them. So Science Club for Girls has designed programs that develop these natural inclinations. It is never too early to connect and inspire them with role models who are excelling in these fields and help young girls dream big dreams.
Our free, hands-on after school science clubs for girls in elementary and middle school take place for 1 – 1.5 hours once a week at public schools, churches or community centers. Check out the schedule and locations. Volunteer mentor-scientists and adolescent Junior Mentors lead fun and interactive science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) explorations with groups of up to 12 girls. Our curriculum has been specifically created and adapted to meet girls’ development and interests. Each semester, the girls explore different STEM topics, including archaeology, chemistry, engineering, environmental science, physics, and more.
Show Me the Science is a “reverse science fair” event where adults present to youth and families. Girls from K-6th grades and their families experience hands-on science through fun and engaging demonstrations and activities designed by corporate and university partners to explore the physics of paper airplanes, viscosity of yogurt, and how you can use chocolate to determine the wavelength of light, and more. Live animals are known to make an appearance.
Please subscribe to our mailing list to find out how to join our next Show Me the Science event.
Girls in elementary school immerse in science and engineering theme-based experiences during February vacation or after the school year. Curricula ranges from archaeology to ecology to green chemistry. In the afternoon girls connect what they learn with the real world through field trips to museums, laboratories and other exciting venues. More
