What we do

Project Scientist is an education nonprofit delivering high-quality experiences in science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) to underserved and marginalized girls* ages 4-18. We deliver summer and after-school programs in partnership with local schools, school districts, nonprofit organizations and STEM Companies.

*While we focus on those who identify as girls, Project Scientist is dedicated to serving children of all gender identities and expressions.

Programs

Project Scientist’s Summer Lab is a hands-on immersive STEAM experience that takes summer camp to a whole new level!

Project Scientist's After-School Club is an interactive STEAM program. Students meet 90 minutes per week and engage in exciting hands-on experiments and activities.

Project Scientist’s Scholars program is a six-month in-person/virtual experience for girls ages 13-18 to build confidence, ignite curiosity and empower their STEM career dreams.

The Project Scientist Teaching Institute is an initiative by teachers for teachers, training educators on integrating gender and racially-equitable STEAM teaching strategies.
