Programs

STEM Club 

Project Scientist's STEM Club is an engaging program with STEM enrichment for girls ages 4 to 12. In STEM Club, girls are able to experience the magic of science, technology, engineering, and math through exciting, hands-on experiments. STEM Club is a virtual after-school program that meets once per week on Tuesdays 4:30 - 6 p.m. PT/ET. Students receive hands-on science content instruction aligned with NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards), an at-home lab kit, and a collaborative environment to grow their STEM interests. Our sessions are taught by credentialed teachers who have been trained in equitable STEM teaching strategies. Join in on the fun!

 

Summer Virtual STEM Lab 

Experience the magic of science with your whole family from the convenience of your home with Project Scientist's virtual summer camp! Join Project Scientist in an immersive STEM experience that comes with access to leading age-tailored STEM curriculum, carefully crafted and led by credentialed teachers, and a STEM lab kit that will allow students to conduct five experiments a week from their own lab space! Join us live in virtual classrooms of no more than 25 girls per teacher, interactions with leading STEM companies and their female STEM professionals, known as STEM Superstars!

 

Scholars 

Project Scientist Scholars Virtual Program is designed for girls* ages 13 to 18 to provide a safe space to grow STEM career skills and awareness of STEM career pathways. It provides an opportunity to strengthen relationships among diverse and underrepresented Scholars (youth participants), Rising Stars (interns), and STEM professionals! These relationships support the development and growth of confidence in their STEM abilities, foster further development of positive STEM identities, and support their STEM interest and confidence.

Monthly themes related to STEM, leadership, and collaboration will be executed during the program with visits from STEM Superstars (STEM role models) as well.

 

Financial Assistance 

Project Scientist's mission is to expose a diverse population of young girls to a high-quality STEM program that inspires confidence in their pursuit of learning throughout the year. Diversity includes economic background, and we stand by our mission by proudly serving 70% of our students who come from low-income households. In order to provide more girls with our high-quality STEM immersion, we offer full and partial scholarships through tiered-model-pricing based on income levels.

 

STEM Sessions 

STEM Sessions is our FREE web series for all aspiring scientists and anyone interested in science / technology / engineering careers! STEM Sessions are LIVE meet-and-greets over Zoom, where you have the opportunity to meet with real scientists and engineers from science and technology companies! During each STEM Session, our featured speakers share their STEM story — their career path, obstacles they may have faced, what they do in their current role, and more. Because our STEM Sessions happen live over Zoom, you also get the opportunity to ask them any questions you may have!

 

STEM Girls Change the World

Surrounded by brilliant and passionate STEM teachers, professors, and professionals, your daughter will be inspired and provided the right tools to reach her highest potential.

Over the course of six weeks, students are immersed in STEM, learning from a tailored curriculum facilitated by highly skilled and credentialed educators, exciting hands-on experiments and field trip expeditions, and daily interactions with female STEM role models from a variety of professional fields.

 

In-Person 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, 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.
