Virtual Science Clubs
Due to COVID-19, Science Club for Girls has moved our programming online for spring and fall semesters. We are now accepting applications for our VIRTUAL Fall Science Clubs for girls in grades K-8, and our VIRTUAL Junior Mentoring program for high school girls. We also encourage club participants to explore our STEM activities, live science shows, and online resources—available on our COVID-19 response page.
Our programs are designed as “clubs” to reinforce collaboration and teamwork, as these methods have been shown to greatly enhance girls’ learning. To help build both skills and confidence, curriculum and club structures are designed to be inquiry-driven — activities are hands on, rather than demonstration style — with opportunities to experiment, to fail in safe and supportive settings, and to be resourceful and persistent. Science Club for Girls programs are organized by age/grade level.
K-5 Science Clubs
8-10 weeks of hands-on explorations in STEM led by volunteer women mentor scientists and Junior Mentors in weekly afterschool and Saturday settings.
STEMinistas: Middle School
Inquiry and project-based team learning for middle school girls, centered on the core concepts of engineering and the design process, led by women mentor scientists.
