Girls in STEM

About Girls in STEM: The Museum of Discovery offers free week-long day camps for girls ages 12-14. The purpose of Girls in STEM is to give participants an opportunity to explore science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers with hands-on activities led by female STEM professionals, ultimately encouraging them to continue their interests in STEM. The Museum of Discovery made this a priority as there continues to be a gender gap in STEM careers and leadership roles, with men outnumbering women.

In addition to our day camps for ages 12-14, Girls in STEM is now offering separate opportunities for returning participants ages 15 and up! The first of these opportunities is the Leadership Institute in March. Participation in the spring Leadership Institute will make you eligible to be a Girls in STEM camp counselor over the summer. Please contact Grace at ggriffiths@museumofdiscovery.org for more info.
