Virtual STEM Lab — How It Works


A Project Scientist Lab kit will open a world of possibilities for your child and your family! Each lab kit will contain everything your daughter will need to conduct all of the experiments and activities for the weeks she will attend. We have personally handpicked the items in your lab kit to ensure that your girl has the very best virtual STEM summer camp experience.

Along with the kit, you will also receive access to online resources, videos, and experiments for deeper learning for the entire family. Each kit is intended for one child. You will receive one kit per registered child and will automatically receive 10% off each additional sibling registered. Extra shipping & handling charges will be applied for Project Scientist lab kits delivered to Hawaii, Alaska & International addresses. Please contact for details.


Take part in LIVE STEM programming every day* throughout the week!

Our small class sizes tailored by age groups provide girls a personal and intimate learning experience that will inspire and challenge them. Meet scientists and engineers in interactive Zoom webinars and embark on virtual expeditions as if you were there in person!

The Project Scientist Virtual STEM Lab, our online summer camp, is a high-touch, hands-on educational experience that brings the magic of Project Scientist to the comfort of your home at your own schedule.

*Events take place in your chosen time zone (Eastern Time, Pacific Time, Central Time). 

JUNE 21 - JUNE 25, 2021

Modern Day Building Science & Engineering Design:

How do we create a higher quality indoor building environment? How can we save energy spent to heat and cool our homes? Scientists will learn from the best in the field and engineer their own modern day building structures that include the design of elements like thermal, acoustic, light, air & water.

Technology & Internet

This is an engineering-focused week all about the internet! Everybody uses the internet, but do we know how the internet gets to your house, how does searching on the internet work, what are algorithms, what is machine learning and AI, and how do they affect what we do? Girls will create their own webpage and market it based on the knowledge they gain.
