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.
