About the Scholars Program
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.
What You Will Get
This year, we serving 60 girls in our Scholars Program! Scholars programs serves girls* ages 13-18 in a virtual setting, weekly. Scholars engage in collaborative projects, independent and group challenges, and career themed activities with Math integration opportunities to strengthen their STEAM interest and confidence. The Project Scientist Scholars program will also incorporate strategies from our SciGirls Partner, Black SciGirls, to engage our diverse youth participants in activities and achieve the following goals:
- Scholars will expand their understanding of what their STEM pathway could look like
- Scholars will feel empowered to address inequities using STEAM, and challenging STEAM Stereotypes via increased access to STEM education for Black girls, preparing them for future workforce participation
- Scholars will feel more confident about their "soft skills" related to STEM (i.e. collaboration, creating and giving presentations, asking questions)
- Scholars will use critical thinking to solve a real-world STEM challenge that a business is addressing
