The Problem

To show young girls that science can be fun and exciting by performing hands on experiments to explore areas, such as energy and matter, global warming and renewable energy, astronomy, chemistry, and neuroscience. Since boys are three times more likely to pursue STEM careers than girls, we are focusing on encouraging girls to pursue scientific knowledge at a young age through our Girls Science Interactive camps. We want girls to feel included in the science community so they can flourish with the great minds of tomorrow!

Our Plan

We use fun experiments like lemon powered batteries, UV beads, and bottle rockets to explain common principles of science and take the theoretical nature of science and transform it into an applicative aspect. We begin each free class with a lesson and then an experiment to go along with it!
