Robbinsville, NC

Project:   SciGirls

The SciGirls project focuses on engaging female students in grades 6-8 by helping them to develop an interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) classes while empowering them to be more confident in entering these disciplines. The project serves 10 female students from each grade who participate in a three-part program made up of weekly after-school activities, quarterly field trips and a summer enrichment camp. Along with teachers, high school senior students serve as mentors and chaperones for the SciGirls participants.

The objectives of this program are: (1) to improve scientific skills and curiosity in our students; (2) expose students to STEM-related college major and career options; (3) increase enthusiasm and acceptance for science and math in an underrepresented population."
