Summer STEM Academy — Back in session 2021. Registration opens January 2021!
If you believe your daughter, age 4-12, would benefit from a community of like-minded girls that enjoy exploring through the sciences and celebrating their accomplishments, then Project Scientist is a place just for her! 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 trips, and daily interactions with female STEM role models from a variety of professional fields.
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, St. Paul, Pasadena, Los Angeles, Orange County, and Atlanta, 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.
Project Scientist's mission is to expose a diverse population of young girls to a high-quality STEM academy that inspires confidence in their pursuit of learning throughout the year. Diversity includes economic background, and we stand by our mission by proudly serving the 40% of our students who come from low-income households. In order to provide more girls with our high-quality Summer STEM immersion, we offer full and partial scholarships through tiered-model-pricing based on income levels.
