Project Scientist's After-School STEAM Club is an interactive after-school program offering girls* ages 4-12 from marginalized and underserved communities an opportunity to discover the joy of science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. The club meets once a week for 90 minutes over 12-16 weeks. 

The Project Scientist Difference

Exciting themes: Each Club is built around a theme, such as climate change, food science, robotics, materials engineering and more!

Bilingual programs and Credentialed teachers: Our programs, available in English and Spanish, are taught using gender and racially-equitable teaching strategies by credentialed teachers upskilled at our Teaching Institute. 

Tuition Free Programs: We focus on girls from marginalized and underserved communities and we are committed to providing all programs at no cost to students and their families. 

Expeditions & Role Models: We take our students on expeditions to STEM companies to gain real world exposure to the STEM industry and to meet diverse women STEM professionals and role models.

Parental Involvement: We intentionally engage parents and caregivers through STEAM sessions and sharing resources to ensure that our students receive holistic support in their STEM education journey.

Bring our program to your School or Nonprofit

Project Scientists partners with school districts, individual schools, nonprofit organizations and library systems to offer our After-School STEAM Club. We provide curriculum, training materials for teachers, STEAM education kits for students and all the logistical support to run our programs.

Champion your child’s STEM journey

Are you a parent or caregiver looking to enroll your child in our Summer Lab? While we don’t take enrollments directly, you can fill out our program interest form and a member of our team will contact you with opportunities in your location. If we don’t have a program offered near you we can explore ways to bring our lab to your child’s school.

Become a Funding Partner

STEM companies are a core part of our programs. We partner with companies to host expeditions at their facility and engage their employees as volunteers and role models for our students. Funding from STEM companies allows us to offer our programs tuition-free, making them more inclusive and accessible to our students. Learn more about the benefits of being a funding partner here.
