Summer STEM Academy Camp for Girls

The STEM Academy for Girls

Project Scientist is the leading summer STEM academy for girls, offering tailored science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum for girls ages 4 to 12 on university campuses

Why only girls?

Our program is based on a vast amount of research that underserved and unidentified girls are not provided STEM opportunities at a pace, depth, and breadth commensurate with their talents and interests. So, we tailor our curriculum to effectively engage girls in STEM through seminars with female STEM role models, hands-on activities, and field trips to STEM companies.

The Project Scientist Difference

  • We invest in credentialed teachers because we believe your daughter should receive quality STEM education from those who are highly qualified to teach.
  • Girls have face-to-face interaction with STEM Superstars, accomplished female STEM professionals from organizations such as Google, NASA, and Duke Energy.
  • We host our Summer Academy on university campuses to inspire girls to picture themselves pursuing higher education.
  • Girls go on field trip expeditions to STEM companies to give them an opportunity to see women excelling in STEM careers.
  • Our outcomes and impact have been researched and validated by Harvard and the University of North Carolina Charlotte.
  • We are recognized as a Sci-Girls partner and trainer, which enables us to be one of the few organizations using PBS-created and National Science Foundation funded curriculum.

This is a big opportunity for girls…It makes you think more about earth and about how many things you can change through science. I want to be a surgeon because I love helping people. I think everyone can change the world.
