Our mission is to increase the self-confidence and science literacy of K–12th grade girls belonging to groups that are underrepresented in the sciences through free, after school programs that provide experiential learning, mentorship, and leadership opportunities. Girls work with mentor-scientists who model and foster leadership, affirm college as an expectation, and promote careers in science and technology as goals and options.
Science Club for Girls is facilitated by a Professor of Chemistry from Fitchburg State University and three graduate interns. This program helps to grow and nurture girls’ interest in science and to pursue science careers. This program is so popular, it has grown into two clubs!
