Science Clubs

Our free, hands-on Science Clubs for grades K-8 take place once a week for 8-weeks each semester. Guided by volunteer women-in-STEM adult mentors and Junior Mentors in grades 8-12, Science Club participants explore different STEM topics each semester such as chemistry, anatomy, engineering, computer science, environmental science, and physics.

We offer both in-person and virtual programs, but all programs, regardless of the format, include hands-on learning, mentorship, and social-emotional learning. 

Fall 2023 Clubs start the week of October 3 and run for 8 weeks. See below for more information and application. 
Virtual Clubs happen on Zoom. Participants will need a computer, laptop, tablet, or phone with internet access for the duration of the Club meeting time each week. All other materials are provided free of charge and distributed at a convenient location prior to the first week of Clubs. Participants can choose one of four weekly virtual meeting times for Fall 2023:
  • Mondays from 4:00pm - 5:00pm 

  • Tuesdays from 4:00pm - 5:00pm 

  • Thursdays from 4:00pm - 5:00pm 

  • Saturdays from 10:30am - 11:30am
