Girls in STEM

Each summer, the Museum of Discovery offers free one-week workshops for girls ages 12-15.  The purpose of Girls in STEM is to give participants an opportunity to explore STEM careers with hands-on activities led by female STEM professionals, ultimately encouraging them to continue their STEM studies and even pursue STEM careers.  The Museum of Discovery has made this a priority as there continues to be a gender gap in STEM careers with men outnumbering women.

Due to COVID-19, the 2020 Girls in STEM schedule has been amended to include some fall programming.

Jonesboro Girls in STEM will be held at the Arkansas State University camps on the below dates:

Saturday, September 12

Saturday, September 19

Saturday, September 26

If you are a young lady between the ages of 12 and 15 and would like to attend Girls in STEM Jonesboro, please complete the application by Friday, September 4. This program is free to attend.

The safety of Girls in STEM participants and mentors is our top priority. Therefore, we will strictly following Arkansas Department of Health directives. Everyone will be required to wear masks that cover their noses and mouths as well as have their temperatures checked before entering the classroom. There will be sanitizing stations and frequent hand-washing will be required.
