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.
