Year Round Expeditions

Project Scientist has you covered parents! When school is closed for teachers, our STEM programs and expeditions have you covered for all girls ages 4 to 12! Have your girls join the Project Scientist team as we explore and learn from exciting local STEM companies and universities. Our popular Expedition program brings home the relevance of STEM to girls through getting a VIP behind the scenes look at companies and hearing from female STEM professionals. Tours of University campuses provide a glimpse of what college life is like and hearing from female STEM majors gives girls the vision that they too can succeed in science, technology, engineering, and math.

During the school year in Charlotte, Pasadena, Los Angeles and Orange County, we offer full day Expeditions when schools are closed, offering parents an exciting and educational full-day option for their girls ages 4 to 12.
